to avoid being in this scenario, one only needs to make sure they carry with them proper ID. no more. no less.

if you don't have proper ID, then, that means you are not a citizen of the usa...expect to be treated badly.

what's so hard to understand here?

no need to change anything about our current immigration laws. they just need to be enforced.

in every country I ever traveled to, I was required to be responsible and show ID whenever asked for it. even in mexico.

absolutely no need for reform.

The sad fact is that criminals prey on other criminals in prison. While I do not condone such actions I find that not comitting crimes prevents being a victim in prison just as staying out of the ocean prevents being a victim of shark attack.
