Lol, every law we have must be some sort of racial profiling. Next time a police officer pulls me over I'm going to scream racial profiling because he can pull me over and not worry about a lawsuit. Since I'm white that's racial profiling.

What is the ratio of hickspanic cops in NM?
Will they profile their own?
I don't think so.
These guys are only doing their job.
White cops or should I say off white cops are not going to risk their job by picking on anyone.
This would be like saying the cops in Compton or Harlem will profile a community that is predominatly African American or other cities that are any other race.
Get the illegals out of the state no matter what race they are.

howindahell do you equate 'profiling' and discrimination against hispanics in a state majority hispanic, santa fe lawmakers almost all hispanic, police predominately hispanic, judges-DA's, lawyers majority hispanic ?. Aren't we a bit quick to pull that 'racist' card out here ? If anything the gringos, blacks and asians are discriminated against in this new 'mexican' state.

If we had 20 million white Canadians to deport I'd be more than happy to show my citizenship so that the state government (since the feds won't) could do it's job.

just be here legally and you have no worries. I have been harassed by cops since I was 18. Bald and some tatts, go figure. At least this will take some heat off for a while. It's pretty obvious who's here legally and illegally.

If you're White and illegal in American, it's OK!

They'll claim that, theirs no whites are illegal in America & when you present proof that their is millions of illegal whites in America then they claim that they assimilate better by learning English but often ignore obvious facts such as the white illegals still breed like rabbits, suck welfare dry, steal jobs from Americans, use our emergency rooms for free, waste our K-12 education, yadda yadda becuase only an illegal Mexican does that.

A white person could never do that when they illegally hop the Canadian border, they're a good illegal.

I'm not talking nationality. Neither was the article referring to Mexicans. Not all hispanic illegals are from Mexico. Read some current events moron. And take some comprehension courses while you're at it.

So you're saying as long as you're a white Hispanic it's ok to be in the US illegally.

Pretzel logic?

PSL, I agree with you and also with libsRTurds.I live on a bordertown (due to my job and also a low cost of living), many terrorists and anti-American extremists are caught trying to cross illegally or are caught on the US side, a high number of them are from Somalia,Middle East. Some extremists are obtaining Mexico citizenships and are used by the drug cartel, this is the reason for car and roadside bombings currently happening in Mexico. Why Mexican citizenships? Because when caught, they say it is easier to pick up the country's language, mannerisms and accent, and therefore try to pass as a Mexican national.
The proposed wall along the the border is to KEEP terrorists from entering the US at all! Unfortunately we are NOT protected against the "sleepers" already in this country.
I agree with libsRTurds, because danger comes in all colors, everyone should be questioned.
For all who are uninformed, so-called Mexican illegals come to the US for a better life. The other illegals (the silent and dangerous, who are ignored because people focus "on dem d**n illegals") are trying to destroy the US. Thankfully we have Homeland Security and the military and may they always keep the US safe

Racial profiling will lead to more law suites. People have rights.
A federal appeals court has upheld a controversial verdict that an Arizona rancher must pay $87,000 to four illegal immigrants he detained at gunpoint while they were crossing his property.
