Arizona Immigration

Arizona’s done it.
They’ve passed the toughest immigration law in the country against the wishes of national and global leaders, including President Obama.
Sparked by drug wars in Michigan, Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer has signed a law that will make it a crime to be in the state illegally and will allow polices to check “suspects” from immigration paperwork.
Many are concerned that the new legislation will cause a spiked rate of racial profiling. Brewer has dismissed these concerns and instead has held a bill signing ceremony.
A recent poll shows that 70 percent of voters in the state approve the measure even though 53 percent of those voters believe the bill violates civil rights.
It seems the law will be really difficult to enforce without law enforcement officials targeting Latinos and will definitely be a violation of civil rights. I’m definitely not a fan.
Agree? Disagree? Let me know below.
