Arizona Enacts Stringent Law on Immigration

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer recently approved a new bill on immigration. The new bill makes the failure to carry immigration documents a crime. it also allows the police to harass anyone they suspect is an illegal immigrant. President Obama is strongly against it, saying it violates the rights we hold. Brewer claims racial profiling will not be tolerated.

Whoa okay first of all, how is racial profiling not going to be tolerated if the targets of the law are non-american citizens? How are the police going to distinguish between an illegal immigrant and a natural born mexican-american without being racist? this reminds me of the policy in germany under hitler that all jews had to carry the proper documents.
