    Let's contrast two government policies to see which is more intrusive.

    - Arizona's Immigration Law has been criticized because citizens might be asked to show their papers if they are stopped for a traffic violation.

    - TSA is now touching people's genetalia in the quest to ensure SAFETY.

    Which one is a bigger abuse of government power?

    Wrong answer. Discriminatory treatment of latinos is not one of the two choices.

    Their both an abuse of government power.
    And thanks to Arizona's new law my state has seen an increase of illegals. So, instead of solving the problem they have moved farther into the US.

    If the Feds actually protected the borders instead of spending their time deciding what light bulbs we should use, forbidding caffeine in cocktails, and forcing us to burn food (corn) for fuel, your state would not be experiencing this problem.

    And if you are bothered by an increase in illegals in your state, why isn't AZ equally justified in wishing to control the problem in their own?

    Maybe, but they should come up with something that actually works.
    And my state should make the prove citizenship to get a drivers license. I went to the DOL recently, and it was a hot mess.

    In California we no longer arrest people who break the law of driving without a licence.

    Are you suggesting that instead of covering the breasts of statues in the Capital, Attorney General Ascroft might have better served the nation by protecting our southern border? What an idea, have you no sense of morality?
    And AG Gonzales would have better served our nation by enforcing immigration laws and ignoring the sage advice of Monica Goodling and saving the DOJ from non Social Conservatives.
    Outragious, I say.

    Never did. We arrest only misdemeanor and felony crimes, driving without a license is an infraction.
    Driving on a suspended or revoked license (14601 CVC) is a misdemeanor and cause for detention, though usually it's cite and release. Upon conviction of 14601 CVC a manditory jail sentence is imposed.
