“Now suddenly if you don’t have your papers and you took your kid out to get ice cream, you can be harassed, that’s something that could potentially happen.”
Yeah, Mr. President that is something that could potentially happen, if the law officer wasn’t following the new law. An officer cannot all of the sudden pull you over for looking like an immigrant, which would put everyone, “at risk of harassment” except for Native Americans. The law is in place so that officers that catch people already committing crimes or disobeying other laws can be asked to provide ID, you know like a police officer does whenever you get pulled over for speeding. So now we don’t only have a right to health care, but we also have a right to not be “harassed” by law enforcement asking us for identification?
The new state law also mirrors the federal law, it’s just the federal government doesn’t enforce it’s own law. So the state government actually made a law that was going to be enforced, crazy I know. So you’ll hear a lot of talk about how the law should be challenged in court in order to rally opinions against it, but you wont see any action because the law is perfectly sound and addresses a need so great in Arizona that it’s supported by 70% of the population. Something Mr. Obama can never understand as he continues to identify with less and less of the population.
