Pro and con Immigrant

Arizona’s anti-immigrant law, S.B. 1070, allows police to determine the immigration status of someone arrested or detained when there is “reasonable suspicion” they are not in the U.S. legally.  The law invite rampant racial profiling against Latinos, Asian-Americans and others presumed to be "foreign" based on how they look or sound.  Also authorize police to demand papers proving citizenship or immigration status from anyone they stop and suspect of being in the country unlawfully. It's basically "stop and show me your papers".
