Do you believe that there should be a bill reform on Az new immagration laws? On grounds that it consists of profiling, and white supremists not only funded it, but also drew it up!

The new Arizona immigration law is not only affecting illegal, but many legals as well. It causes profiling, and is imposing on citizens legal rights. A few legal citizens were even deported for failure to provide immediate proof of citizenship. White supremacists even had their hands in this bill. What is the state opening the door for here?

Even with all the legal stuff aside. It will affect businesses. families who are all legal but one or two of them, as well as many legal citizens being falsely accused. Is this not just a form of hate and scrutiny?

  • I believe it is unconstitutional and will cause profiling. The police in AZ don't want the law either...

  • hot-mama86, have you READ the actual AZ immigration law, or are you simply responding to what you've heard about the law?

  • Racism isn't dictating our law on this issue. Illegal immigrants causing havoc is.

  • I have some issues with your sources. The Huffington Post is a rag, and blogs are unreliable as factual due to the subjective form of the content. The law clearly states racial profiling can't be used as a basis for the stop. I'm glad AZ has taken a stance to secure their border, which as a matter of fact, is my border. They are on the front lines of the drug trafficking, the murders, the illegals entering by the droves. It is a matter of coinsidence that they share a border with a Latino country. They could have made the same law if they shared a border with Canada. Would you call that "racial profiling"? No, I seriously doubt it. Be upset with the people who are breaking the laws of your country and not with a state trying to act in the best interest of its legal citizens.

  • A few legal citizens were even deported.


    The AZ law is not even in effect yet, and you already have legals deported.


    You have been fed a line of bull crap.

  • I believe it is unconstitutional and will cause profiling. The police in AZ don't want the law either...

    Brian Livingston, president of the Arizona Police Association, which represents 9,000 rank-and-file officers and agents in the state, supports SB1070 without reserve. "What we've seen is inaction, a lot of discussion," he said. "We have officers getting killed, getting severely injured by illegal aliens." He told the story of officer Marc Atkinson, a young Phoenix cop whom Livingston had personally recruited to the force. Atkinson was killed by an illegal alien during a drug bust, said Livingston.

  • It should be reformed. But I support what they are trying to do. They just need to do it in a more legal way!

  • If the bill endorses racial profiling, why does the federal legal challenge to the law not include that as it's reasoning for the challenge?


    And I agree with jesse, blogs are not reliable sources.

  • Slave owners are a bit different than white supremists first off. Secondly This is a new day an age where rasism should not dictate our laws.
