AZ

Say you’re a Latino living in Arizona, who has a “contact” with the police.  They think you may be an illegal alien, and ask for your identification.  Turns out, there’s no law requiring any citizen to actually possess or carry identification with them.  What’s the next step for the police?

Oh, and by the way, police have always been allowed to check the immigration status of suspects, this just allows them to check the status of other people who have “contact” with the police.

OK, stipulate that this Latino is walking down the street and the police talk to him about something. That counts as a "contact" for the AZ law, so now if he has a Cheech Marin accent, it's a reenactment of "Born in East L.A." hehe

Oh, I'm not saying it's right. The reason I held on to that video for so long is because it p*ssed me off.
