President Obama on Friday criticized a controversial new immigration bill in Arizona, calling it "misguided."
"Our failure to act responsible at the federal level will only open the door to irresponsibility by others. That includes, for example, the recent efforts in Arizona, which threaten to undermine basic notions of fairness that we cherish as Americans, as well as the trust between police and their communities that is so crucial to keeping us safe," the president said at a naturalization ceremony for 24 members of the military.
Critics argue the new law would foster racial profiling, saying most police officers don't have enough training to look past race while investigating a person's legal status.
If this goes to the supreme court, I think the only provision that will get shot down is immigrants having to carry their green card on them at all times. Other than that I don't see what else is unconstitutional about this bill.
