    IF ARIZ LAW IS “UNCONSTITUTIONAL”

    Then this is “unconstitutional” and the Constitution is “unconstitutional.”


    Federal Immigration and Nationality Act
    Section 8 USC 1324(a)(1)(A)(iv)(b)(iii)

    State and local law enforcement officials have the general power to investigate and arrest violators of federal immigration statutes without prior INS knowledge or approval, as long as they are authorized to do so by state law. There is no extant federal limitation on this authority. The 1996 immigration control legislation passed by Congress was intended to encourage states and local agencies to participate in the process of enforcing federal immigration laws. Immigration officers and local law enforcement officers may detain an individual for a brief warrantless interrogation where circumstances create a reasonable suspicion that the individual is illegally present in the U.S. Specific facts constituting a reasonable suspicion include evasive, nervous, or erratic behavior; dress or speech indicating foreign citizenship; and presence in an area known to contain a concentration of illegal aliens. Hispanic appearance alone is not sufficient. But can be used. Immigration officers and police must have a valid warrant or valid employer's consent to enter workplaces or residences.

    Under Immigration and Nationality Act Section 237 (a)(1)(B) which says:
    "Any alien who is present in the United States in violation of this Act or any other law of the United States is deportable."

    It forces Americans to carry proof of citizenship.

    Is that constitutional?

    That's probably where the AZ law departs from what was cited in the OP.

    i know you're asking for a link to abuse her. but you already know that police in AZ have the right to stop and demand papers from anyone they think *might* be an illegal. that means someone who is a citizen but came from puerto rico would be stopped in AZ. that means that someone who came from mexico but is here legally would be stopped. it means that if i look hispanic (even though i'm not) an officer with a gun would have the right to demand papers. if such papers are demanded and i had nothing (which i wouldn't since i don't walk around with my passport) i could be arrested.

    worse... it could be done to the children of people here lawfully who may be citizens.

    basically, it allows them to stop you for DWL... (driving while latino).
