    Sure profiling can be a bad thing and can be abused by some and possibly also make some people uncomfortable because of the generalization when it comes to who looks like they could be illegal or not....

    But, how can any person in this country who pays taxes, and who's future is being sacrificed by the debt we're in, oppose the idea of keeping people out of this country who aren't here legally and who are being a burden on our society...

    Tell me , how is racial profiling "BAD"? Call me the devil's advocate. If the shoe fits...Most illegal aliens are Hispanic, Latino or Chicano. They are Mexicans, and they aren’t shy about it. Mexican cultural imperialism, that’s what it is. Like the 800 lb gorilla in the room, all these social reform advocates want us to pretend we don’t notice.

    Well, in this case, since a huge proportion of our LEGAL population is Mexican, it isn't much of an elimination tool all by itself.

    Legal Mexicans who will be asked for their paperz. They will look just as illegal until they produce them and that is not the America I know.

    I dont care about racial profiling at all.. But I do care about violation of peoples' rights.

    Even though I like the premise of the Arizona law, I cannot support it because it is unconstitutional. Im a caucasian male, and yet the law could theoretically have me arrested for failing to produce my papers even if Im minding my own business walking down a public sidewalk.

    And exactly how do you figure THAT? And while you're at it, I'd be fascinated to hear how you get "Unconstitutional" out of something that was very carefully crafted with that very opposing argument in mind.

    There is nothing wrong with the law it is molded along the lines of federal immigration law. Read the law, you will see that media and special interest groups have greatly distorted it's intent. I can't post a link to the version of the Bill that the Arizona governor signed. I'm still working on that 15 posts before I can post a link rule. As soon as I get it out of the way I'll be back and post that link.

    Here is that link to Bill 1070 that the Arizona Governor signed last moth. At the top of the page it will tell you what the colored text is all about. She sent it back once for changes before she would sign it. HERE

    That's not true. If it was true, I would agree with you. Seems to me, you've been misled by the media.... The media misleading people.... that's something that doesn't happen much... except that it does happen every day.
