And the other assumption is that everyone supporting the law is a redneck racist.

That little song you were alluding to was written by Woodie Guthrie,
one of the biggest Socialists of all times. This land is my land, this land
is your land, blah, blah ,blah. And he wasn't referring to Americans.
He wanted all the "illegals" so he could also have a nice warm fuzzy
feeling about his fantasy world.

Have you all forgotten that these are hard working people just like you and me? Just trying to make a life for themselves?
Did you ever stop the think about the actual immigration process? The ammount of work, loop holes and utter BS that is required to become a legal and valid American Citizen?

Notice the section in bold?
Foreign relations is exactly that. FOREIGN. i.e. dealing with other countries.
...MAYBE you should reread what I posted, because it clearly tells how laws like this have been brought to court and found to be unconstitutional, thus repealed. Or perhaps read the example, where if I recall a state in the USA wasn't allowed to use legislation against illegal immigrants.
Lies. Please show me in the law where it dictates them to racially profile.
The part where a state on the Mexican-US boarder passed a law heavily enforcing immigration. It doesn't take much to infer that people are going to use racial profiling to enforce the law.
And in order to freely exercise those rights you have to be a LAW ABIDING member of the country that protects those rights.
I guess I missed the fine print near "ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL" that says "but only if you're an American!"
Too bad that isn't what the founders believed.
Lies. Please show me the similarities in the AZ law vs Germanic law.
From the holocaust museum website
All Jews were obliged to carry identity cards that indicated their Jewish heritage
I can't find a copy of the exact law (although I've seen it before) but it basically allowed nazi law enforcement to question anyone with any hint of suspicion of being Jewish and allowed law enforcement to ask for ID even if you weren't doing anything.
You never get asked for your drivers license?
Only when I am needed to. I've refused a handful of times because I didn't need to and they didn't have the authority to force me to give my ID.
You said that there was legal precedent for the state to not enforce immigration. That is unconstitutional.
I said there was legal precedent for the country to uphold slavery. That is unconstitutional.
Connect the dots.
Except one of these two actions is not a heinous crime against humanity. Try to guess which one it is.

What fascist methods?
I keep seeing all these accusations being thrown out, but nothing to back them up. People having to show their ID's? When 24 states have laws that make it illegal to not have your ID?
