Seems the great state of Arizona has come up with a novel plan to curtail illegal immigration.
The local police can stop anyone, with of course following the "probable cause" legality, and ask for "your papers, please."
If none can be produced, the person is deported on the spot. Sounds like a familiar refrain I once heard Germany's Third Reich employed. Obviously the Latino community is up in arms, calling the new law "racial profiling."
Well, whether in San Diego — where you see bands of illegals running through turnstiles from Mexico — or all across the porous border in Arizona to Texas, where illegals climb fences, wade through streams, or pay for "coyotes" to transport them into the US, something has to be done.
Maybe Arizona is ahead of the U.S.'s learning curve, but it's a first step. Question is whether it's in the right direction.
