As Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) makes the rounds on television, standing up for the Arizona immigration law that has sparked protests and outrage nationwide, his daughter calls it "a license to discriminate."
"Let me say up-front that I do not support the bill that was signed by Governor Jan Brewer," Meghan McCain wrote in her Daily Beast blog on Wednesday. "I believe it gives the state police a license to discriminate, and also, in many ways, violates the civil rights of Arizona residents."
Sen. McCain, however, feels the law will not become corrupted, as his daughter fears.
However, the younger McCain - who was born and raised in Arizona, but now lives in New York City - feels the approach taken by the controversial Arizona law is not the answer.
"The concept that a law-enforcement official can stop an individual when 'reasonable suspicion exists that a person is an alien, who is unlawfully present in the United States' is essentially a license to pull someone over for being Hispanic," (Meghan)McCain wrote.
For example: Say my town was being plagued by roving gangs of white young men dressed like thugs. They had been overrunning the town, causing chaos, robbing people left right and center, even murdering innocents! Now, the law enforcement knew that all these thugs had a gang mark on their arm, and announced that anyone who fit the stereotype was to be pulled over on suspicion of belonging to this gang and searched for this mark on their arm.
