The constitution does not grant the federal courts the power to nullify state laws and that means they don't have it. AZ needs to make that point if the court does void this law.

The Southern Poverty Law Center filed a brief with the Supreme Court, which argues that “law-abiding Americans, particularly minorities, will be subject to constant scrutiny, lengthy detentions, and false arrests.”

SPLC must be in the pockets of the business communities. Their name is a misnomer to distract us from their real agenda. How could they support the poor and be supporters of illegal aliens simultaneously? Only if they are supporting the business communities as well.

I am so sick and tired of them saying minorities will be put upon if laws are enforced. I am a minority and am asked, like every other US citizen, for ID. I have it and don't mind being asked.

Face it, the only people who will have a problem, as always, are illegal aliens. Suck it up!

Re "arrests and lengthy detention" aren't we all subject to this since the obam signed the NDAA?!!!

They are totally off their rocker. They insist it encourages "racial" profiling. How so? What race are they profiling? Then, after stating that, they go on to say:

a German Mercedes-Benz executive was driving a rental car and was pulled over by the Police in Tuscaloosa, Ala. When he could not immediately produce proof of his lawful visitor status, he was arrested and detained until he could provide proper documentation.

So now "German" is a race and they are profiling? Really? Last I checked, German would most likely be a WHITE person, and yet this law caused him to get caught up. So how is that profiling or even proof of any profiling? Obviously they are not picking only people of color to pull over! And, this German person, as per the original article, didn't have a valid driver's license on him, nor did he have proof he was here legally (as required by our federal statutes!). So how is that profiling? He *should* have been detained, even without state laws!

Then they go on to this:

A few weeks later, a Japanese employee from Honda was stopped by Alabama police. He was ticketed even though he showed an international driver’s license, passport, and U.S. work permit, according to Outside the Beltway.
End Quote

And so what? He was TICKETED. You don't *ticket* someone unless they have a traffic violation. I can show my valid driver's license, but if I have committed a traffic violation, I will still get a ticket. So what is the big deal if they ticketed this guy? They don't say what the ticket is for, so one can only assume it's for a traffic violation, but they don't want to mention that, since it sounds so much better to say they ticketed the guy, even though he had papers. LMAO! I have proof of everything, but if I break the law, I'm going to suffer the consequences. That's life and the way it works. This is also proof that this law in no way targets Hispanics. All sorts of people are pulled over and if they don't have what they need, they get detained. Too bad, so sad.

If you go somewhere, make sure to learn the rules and abide by them. To not do so opens you up to being detained and caused a hassle, as it should.

They only come here to work? So why are only a bit over half of them in Arizona actually working? The rest are working alright -- working to pop out anchor rats so they can get on the government dole!

Of Arizona’s total inhabitants, approximately 6 percent—an estimated 400,000 individuals—are illegal aliens who are not authorized to work, but more than half, 230,000, work anyway.
