    Ariz. immigration law mirrors federal version
    but with state enforcement

    Arizona's new immigration enforcement law is designed to mirror federal immigration laws already in place.
    Federal law mandates that aliens register and carry their documentation. Arizona's new law functions the same way
    The law does not give police officers any additional powers to stop or pull anybody over.
    Mr. Dane (Federation for American Immigration Reform) made it clear that an officer of the law cannot simply walk up to an individual who is not committing a crime or traffic violation and ask the person for his or her legal status.
    If an individual committing a violation or crime is found out to have an illegal status, the law enforcement officer will contact immigration authorities.
    Only after all of that is the cop going to be required (he is now required under the law) to ask about immigration status, but then and only if the person has reasonable suspicion the person might be an illegal alien, and then, even then he can't use as part of his reasonable suspicion, he can't consider race, color, or national origin, as part of his suspicion."
    "No. If you have proper identification, you're going to be on your way. If you produce a driver's license, a valid Arizona ID card -- if you are a Native American, there's a lot of Native Americans on reservations in Arizona, police officers very often get the tribal ID cards or any other state or federal ID that requires proof of legal presence," Mr. Dane said.

    Do you still believe Arizona is Nazi Germany, Mr. Scarborough?

    The reason Obama and DOJ are trying to stop Arizona's immigration law is because they don't want any immigrations laws enforced.

    I did
    I did not click on the links because the article itself is in error. The Arizona law allows for searches as in random road - blocks AND it allows for profiling based upon race, color, etc. provided that is not the only determining factor. The deal is, with a random search, the whole thing is rendered moot and LEOs will definitely look into a person's ID and scrutinize them a bit more based upon race.

    The real danger is how the precedent this sets will affect AMERICANS. A lot of you may fit the profile of an enemy combatant / domestic terrorist and end up being judged guilty until proven innocent. I've personally known quite a number of people this has already happened to under those federal statutes.

    I'm equally turned off by that legislation because, as I continue to warn, it is being promoted by National Socialists:

    I guessing it's a "bot". As much as 40% of posters on some social media sites are "automatic posting robots".

    Ala. is lab for Ariz.-style immigration provision
    27 June`12 — Moments after the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the "show me your papers" provision of Arizona's immigration law, the switchboard lit up at one of Alabama's largest Spanish-language radio stations as worried listeners called in.

    Court ruling leaves Ariz. to rely on feds
    Mon, Jun 25, 2012 — For all the declarations of victory, the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to preserve the "show me your papers" provision in Arizona's immigration law means the state can enforce the statute only with the help of its chief critic: the federal government.
