As a committed lefty, union

As a committed lefty, union blue collar worker and patriotic American, I think we need to control who is in our nation just as they do in every other country in the world.  When you are traveling anywhere else in the world and you have any official encounter, including the police, they ask to see your visa or passport.  How do they know to ask.....you have an accent!  And I believe this strongly addresses and solves the issue of racial profiling. So I say, ANYBODY that has any official contact and has an accent, whether English, German, Japanese, Spanish, Arabic, whatever, you must produce "papers"!  My father was a Hungarian immigrant and he told me that he was required by law to carry his "green card" at all times...what's changed?  I see nothing wrong with requiring immigrants to carry proof that they are in this country legaly.

The problem is that there are

The problem is that there are still native born Americans with accents because their people were here well before the United States acquired the land on which they lived. As a native born American, I wouldn't show a cop my "papers" unless he or she had reason to ask for them, even if I had an accent.
