I didn't say that. I will re-word my last sentence.... Cops are probably not the nicest of all people..
I know that people in a position of power often abuse their power and the law has a ton of room for abuse. In a perfect world the cops would use their best judgement and no one would have a problem with the law. However, In a perfect world everyone would also apply for green cards / visas and latin America would be in better shape so that people didnt have to emigrate away from their home countries to support their families.
You can re word what ever you want to. Were the ones that are not breaking the laws.. Illegals are in everyway and do not deserve to jump any lines for legal immigration. If you want to look at abuse of power look at the POTUS and his cronies. Dont label cops as all the same. They have a job to do and most do it well. Also were not in a perfect world and we will never ever see it the way you wish...

Not sure if you are trying to be sarcastic or not. This would be the best way to deal with it in my opinion. They come here for work knowing they will be paid more than in Central America/Mexico and less than whites here.
Or you could do it like Arizona and have this happen.

So reward them even further for breaking the law? The best way to deal with them is subject them to the punishment for breaking the laws of the United States of America then punish the employers for doing the same.

For those of you who have never traveled to the west, or southwest, cattle guards are horizontal steel rails placed at fence openings, in dug-out places in the roads adjacent to highways (sometimes across highways), to prevent cattle from crossing over that area. For some reason the cattle will not step on the "guards," probably because they fear getting their feet caught between the rails.

A few months ago, President Obama received and was reading a report that there were over 100,000 cattle guards in Colorado . Colorado ranchers had protested his proposed changes in grazing policies, so he ordered the Secretary of the Interior to fire half of the "cattle" guards immediately!!

Before the Secretary of the Interior could respond and presumably try to straighten him out, Vice-President, Joe Biden, intervened with a request that.. before any "cattle" guards were fired, they be given six months of retraining ASAP.

And these guys are running our country, OMG!!

1-866-DHS-2-ICE

My point is that the law leaves cops to decide whether there is reasonable suspicion and claims that race can't be the sole thing to tip off an officer. However, the terms are all so vague that discrimination will occur. Mexicans with thick accents will be harassed more than light mexicans without accents. I also don't live in Arizona and don't have to put up with the crime that persists there. I do live in L.A. though and I have lived in Mexico for 1 year. So yes, I am biased. But I still think the law allows for too much personal judgement.
Maybe you can agree with me on this, Arizona cops are probably not the nicest of all people and it will be very easy for them to go over the limits of the extremely vague law.
I've said it before and I'll say it again, what you espouse is not a problem with the law but a problem with individual law enforcement agents. If you happen to be "profiled" ( and I don't see a d__n thing wrong with profiling) the take it to court.

Five single family houses on my street have been purchased by Hispanics and all five single family houses have been turned into apartment houses with 10 to 15 people living in them at a time.
The lady who owns the house across the street has the house across the street and a townhouse just over the city limits. Both are in foreclosure and have been for some time. She has filed an exemption to the zoning board saying that she lives in the house across the street with her child and a nanny.
She only comes by to collect rent and clean out a room when someone moves out.
The house was a 3 bedroom and now it is a 9 bedroom.
She has had two children born since coming here and she told us she had a son back in Guatemala.
Her name appears differently under each house making us wonder if she is on welfare under two different names or aliases, one in county and one in city.
To boot all she just filed bankruptcy on the townhouse.
If this is just one out of five of the houses on just our street and it is happening all over the country?
What are we as a nation going to do about it?
What can we do about it?
If the house is zoned for single family dwelling and you know for a fact that there is more than one family living there, turn them in to the authorities

Considering the fact that Obama is suing Arizona over the Constitutionality of SB1070, it's rather obvious that Obama's lawyers have enough ammo to justify the lawsuit.
He is suing merely to get the Latino vote. After the election, he'll drop the case because he and his lawyers know they cannot win.

Senators Challenge Pres. Obama on Rumors of Executive Order Amnesty
Several Senators have learned of a possible plan by the Obama Administration that would provide a mass Amnesty for the nation's 11-18 million illegal aliens. Led by Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), eight Senators addressed a letter to the President asking for answers to questions about a plan that would allow DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano to provide an amnesty if they can't secure enough votes for a bill in the Senate.
The letter that was sent to Pres. Obama earlier today asks the President for clarification on the use of deferred action or parole for illegal aliens. The executive actions are typically used in special cases and are evaluated on a case-by-case basis, but if 60 votes can't be secured in the Senate to pass a mass Amnesty, the Administration may use the discretionary actions as an alternative.

Discrimination occurs when a law pretty much allows for all Latinos to be questioned about their legal status at anytime, anywhere. There's no way to tell an illegal immigrant vs a legal immigrant except for a piece of paper. Harassing legal citizens all the time is not cool. What about some English illegal immigrants living there... they won't be harassed but they are just as illegal as the latinos. Every white person should have to carry an identification card and show it at an officer's request as well. But that wont happen because the officers will only focus on Latino's.... this is why I speak of discrimination.
You can respectfully disagree, this is the United States where you can live your own life and think your own thoughts.
Yiiiiiii!!!!!! Would you please go read the law? SB1070 is only 10 pages long. It SPECIFICALLY states there is to be NO DISCRIMINATION at least 4 times. You are so mistaken when you say that this bill allows for all Latinos to be discriminated against. On the contrary-it specifically protects their civil rights. Now if an induvidual cop discriminates he does that with or without this bill. SB1070 has nothing to do with it. Discrimination is an entirely different matter.

PLEASE READ THE BILL!!!!
Oh Yeah

La Secretaría de Relaciones Exteriores (SRE) informó que el gobierno mexicano se sumó formalmente bajo la figura de Amicus Curiae “Amigo de la Corte” a la causa denominada “Friendly House, et al. Vs Michael B. Whiting, et al”.
La dependencia informó que la solicitud se presentó ante la Corte Federal para el Distrito de Arizona, en apoyo a la demanda de impugnación contra la Ley SB1070 aprobada en abril y que entraría en vigor a finales de este mes.
En la misma demanda forman parte el Fondo México-Americana de Defensa Legal y Educativa, el Centro Nacional de Derecho Migratorio y la Unión Americana de Libertades Civiles.
Bajo la figura de “Amicus Curiae” México estará en posibilidad de entregar información al juez de la causa para enriquecer los criterios legales en los que deberá basarse para tomar una decisión.

Obama knows the law, he just doesn't care, it interferes with his plan !
If he legalizes 12 million illegal immigrants. Just giving these 12 million free health care alone could overwhelm the system and bankrupt America. But it adds 12 million reliable new Democrat voters who can be counted on to support big government. Add another few trillion dollars in welfare, aid to dependent children, food stamps, free medical, education, tax credits for the poor, and eventually Social Security.
Sha-Zam, more overloads for the economy, he wants to collapse the economy, destroy it from within, this is the Neo Marxist way !!!!!!!
NO duh and that is the reason for amnesty - free health care and democrats for life! One needs to ask why Obama hates America so much?
