    Any piece that hinges upon a video dubbed "Racist Arizona law..." can pretty much be dismissed out-of-hand.

    Republicans don't understand that they are making their "big business" masters angry.

    Why do you think big business has moved all those jobs overseas? Because they can get cheap labor and not have to pay health care or worry about worker safety. The Republican base is throwing a wrench into a well oiled machine.

    If the Arizona law is racist in your opinion, is federal law even more so since federal agents require no probable cause to question any individual about his or her immigration status?

    And if so, does that make President Obama racist-in-chief?

    I have no problem with the AZ law as it is written and if it is enforced professionally...however, there REALLY needs to be a focus on the Employers. Dry up the jobs, illegals go home on their own and a lot faster.

    Here in Reno, I have seen immigration stop a group of Hispanic men walking down Holcomb Ave and load them into their paddy wagon. I have heard people say they have seen the same thing.
    I be my life they were illegal aliens, could not speak English, did not have identification and look like they just crossed the border. It was obvious they were illegal aliens and obvious they were racial profiled.
    Sheriff Joe Arpiao and the Arizona law do not do this.

    So, you are verifying that federalies can and do make random stops?
