Was it just a weigh station or the first weigh station he encounters in Arizona on his route? Huge difference between the two. And if you think this was excessive, never drive a truck into New Mexico. They want all documents, including the separate Fuel Tax certificate and separate operator's insurance that are specifically for New Mexico. All your inspection stickers better be up to date on both the truck and the trailer as well.
New Mexico, in some aspects, is worse on truck drivers than California is.
Ever been pulled over in a large city?
Ever been confronted by police officers?
Ever been on a thread here and actually came to the conclusion the police state is getting out of hand?
Ever going to admit that the GOVERNMENT is getting to big?
Ever going to admit that the GOVERNMENT is taxing us too much?
Ever going to admit that the GOVERNMENT is trying to CONTROL every aspect of our lives?
Hmmmmmmmm. I think people are beginning to SEE why the TEA PARTY MOVEMENT HAS BECOME.
Hehehehehehe, Outkast has become an ADVOCATE of the TPM!

The guy got pulled over, was asked for information on who he was(normal)and he didnt have it. They arrested him for not providing his identity.
And doesnt he know, that AZ is cracking down on illegal immigration like crazy right now?

A commercial drivers license and a social security card should be more than enough documentation.
However, if we aren't getting the full story here, and he was crossing the Mexico border, then he needs additional documentation, just as I would need if going to Canada and coming back, etc.
What about California?
And New Mexico.
Frankly, you make good sense, but having lived in Tempe, and having travelled all over the Southwest, i frankly cant say i encountered many bad Mexicans at all. They were good hard working people. True, they have absolutely NO right to be here without documentation.
The article states, and I quote, "He produced a drivers licence and a social security NUMBER". Not a card people, a NUMBER.
Again, if you don't like what Arizona is becoming, don't come here.
If I were you guys, I wouldn't worry about the govt. getting too big and powerful and controlling everything. They can't even stop illegal immigrants from coming into their country via Arizona. How stupid did they have to be to let that happen?
We in Arizona know first hand how ignorant and incompetant the govt. is simply by their ineptitude in dealing with this matter. That's why the state itself has to take matters into their own hands.
Abdon was told he did not have enough paperwork on him when he pulled into a weigh station to have his commercial truck checked.
