I posted this as a comment on a friend's LJ and realized that I should also post on mine. My disgust for this "law" is unending.

The law is so dangerous because it also gives individuals the right to sue the police for failing to enforce the law.

Arizona is going to have an avalanche of lawsuits, probably from both sides. And it is clear that this will not solve the problems that I understand were the basis for its passage. Drug cartels really aren't going to care if they are pulled over - they simply will shoot their way out. It is the innocent worker who will bear the brunt of it along with innocent civilians.

My grandparents died in Nazi Austria because of quotas. I am a firm believer in no quota immigration. We may not want the criminals (though of course, that notorious criminal, John Lennon, had problems with INS!) but otherwise, let in and legalize. Give meaning to the statute of Liberty. Don't become like the Nazis.

Climbing down off of my soapbox.
