I believe action was required and I do agree with your viewpoint on how this could feed TPTB's agenda and we will have to watch that very closely to make sure this action was in fact in good faith.

It's a real shame that it had to come to this day where a State had to do what the Government refused to do or was certainly inept at.

Unfortunately my liberal compatriots are fearful to take a REAL stand on this issue
at a federal level. We all know why

In the same way I am opposed to this bill; I believe my rightish friends have valid concern and I will advocate for them and their proposal when a solution comes forth that does not violate such basic principles.





I find myself being of the Democratic party really, and I too oppose this bill, hell if I get a tan, will I be subject to this also?
I don't mean to base the bill on race, but that's what it comes down too, they had no real way to determine who should be questioned for legal status here, and so the default is to base on the majority of illegal immigrants being Hispanics and brown. This is in my opinion, but by default is racial profiling, as race cannot be a factor to question someone of their legal status, and thus not providing enough reason to question anyone.



Down with the bill I say, me not really having any problem with illegals, and so I can sympathize with them, but I know there will be people who flame and tell me to get outta the country for simply not adhering to their viewpoint.

The illegal immigrant problem is a problem, but does not need a solution which will be an even more problem than the original query itself.


Civil disobidience would be a good start.
But that's my humane opinion.

You're driving down the road and you are speeding.

You get pulled over by a police officer.

You are a legal citizen.

He/she asks you for your identification.

You do not have your driver's license on you.

You then are asked to get out of the car for further investigation.

From the car registration, insurance, or other documentation he/she determines you are in fact the owner of the car, insured, and legal.

What is he/she then supposed to do?
