I WAS RACIALLY PROFILED And very thankful to law enforcement that I was because it proved to me that my country was on the jobs trying to protect me. I am a Native American that look middle eastern. I went to the Social Security office and was asked if I had any weapons in my purse. I had a boys scout pocket knife. And the security guard ask me to leave it in the car which I did and it took only a few minutes. While I was waiting I noticed that the white women coming into the car was not asked what they had in their purses. For about three seconds I was offended. During the 50s while my dad and I was traveling in a greyhounds bus the bus was raided by immigration for Illegal Aliens. My dad was ask about this citizenship status and he took out his wallet and showed him a card and that only took a few seconds. The security and immigration was doing their job and I was thankful they were. Only people that oppose profiling are those that have something to hide. Show your papers and be on your way as I and my dad did and be thankful that someone in this country is doing their job. There are only rare case of deportation of u.s. citizens and it is usually their fault. Anyone over 18 in the county is required by law to carry identification. Profiling Latinos when suspected of being in the country illegal is the only way to control illegal immigration enforce our immigration laws. Latinos because the majority of Illegal Aliens are Latino. If you dont have anything to hide, dont run. We racially profile missing children in order to find them. If green men are robbing banks we profile green men.
