Hmm. I wonder where you grew up. I was born in Gary, IN and there you were white or black. We then moved to a nearby town as part of the "white flight" that occurred with the election of Mayor Hatcher. It should be. Well, the first part of that suspicion is realizing that the person was not born in the US. What constitutes the second part, I'm not sure. I think most problems with this law could be addressed by making it a secondary offense. Thus the police wouldn't hassle you about your immigration status unless they'd already stopped you for something else. Furthermore, they'd not hassle people who called them to report a crime or who were coming forward as witnesses in crimes. Hell, perhaps we should even reward illegals willing to come forward as witnesses by giving them citizenship. You have a point, but I guess I'm used to having to "show my papers" every time I get pulled over. Could a state institute, say, a million dollar fine for employing illegals (a million bucks per illegal on your payroll)? That might be a less fascist way of taking care of the illegal problem, if it were enforced. However, I still don't see why building a wall, as Israel has done, wouldn't help as well.
