I live in AZ, I did not want this bill passed. But I am fed up with all the ignorance over this law. The average person up in arms over this law has NOT read it!
Police officers WON'T be going door to door checking legal documents of brown skinned people.
Police will NOT pull someone over purely because they have brown skin.
Police will NOT arrest someone in Home Depot's parking lot because they have brown skin.
The law is the same as Federal law, only now it is State law. The law simply states when an individual is pulled over or has otherwise commited a crime and cannot provide proper ID (driver's license) than the officer can ask the individual's immigration status. If the officer believes the individual is in the US illegally then that person will be turned over to ICE.
That is EXACTLY how the law has been for years and years and years. Only now it is an Arizona state law as well as a Federal law

cops are corrupt but there are those that are. "E. A LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER, WITHOUT A WARRANT, MAY ARREST A PERSON IF THE OFFICER HAS PROBABLE CAUSE TO BELIEVE THAT THE PERSON HAS COMMITTED ANY PUBLIC OFFENSE THAT MAKES THE PERSON REMOVABLE FROM THE UNITED STATES" (cut & paste) I can see where the corrupt cops can use this to knock on a door and arrest someone who can't produce papers. A warrant means some oversight, you have to convince a judge some one's guilty. This allows cops to make snap judgements without having to prove their point. I hope that this law won't be used in the manner the fear mongers on tv make it out to be. I'm not up in arms over, I don't live in AZ & frankly am way to busy right now to get that upset over anything that happens on tv. Having thought thru how I'd feel, if I was illegal (I'm not) and lived in AZ (I don't) I'd move too! I hear CA's nice this time of year! :)

Nyx7~(I cut and pasted, I'm not yelling) doesn't say they have to be arrested or pulled over. Lawful contact can be a simple as a cop walking up to you in Home Depot and asking you to see your id, all the cop has to do is say you are loitering.
Your quote is not updated. On Friday, the Gove signed revisions to the bill~They changed it to Lawful Stop, detention, or arrest. In order to stop one Law Enforcement must have probable cause. They also cannt base the Lawful stop, detention, or arrest on race.

All the republicans on here love to call Obama a socialist but ya know what all the people for this bill and the repubs all up in arms over immigrants are the ones sounding like socialist; National Socialist Movement aka KKK, Neo Nazi's! These hate groups have a lot of new recruits and they are using immigrants and the anger over the whole situation to increase their following, and its working!
