It's been in the news quite a lot lately.
East Valley Tribune: As Gov. Jan Brewer signed one of the toughest immigration bills into law Friday, Hispanic groups and many religious leaders are rising up in opposition, calling the bill “a slap in the face,” “political suicide,” and “hateful and motivated by racism.”
What does the law state? here.
In small part:
1. Requires a reasonable attempt to be made to determine the immigration status of a person during any legitimate contact made by an official or agency of the state or a county, city, town or political subdivision (political subdivision) if reasonable suspicion exists that the person is an alien who is unlawfully present in the U.S.
2. Requires the person’s immigration status to be verified with the federal government pursuant to federal law
How this can not be a mandate for racial profiling beats the hell out of me. It's basically "We're being overrun by Mexicans!" writ in to law. I bet they won't be arresting the hordes of Australians and Swedes who are converging on Arizona.
