Before this new law was even signed a case came up that shows what might become commonplace. I heard on the Michelangelo Signorile show about an American Citizen truck driver who was arrested at a truck stop and taken in handcuffs because he did not have his birth certificate with him. His commercial driver’s license which is vetted by the Department of Transportation as well as the state was not an adequate form of ID.

I guess there's nothing wrong if they continue to push the Arizona immigration law besides, it is not all about discrimination or any racial issue, I think they are up to the law. Although I do feel that illegal immigration is a problem, I don't know if this law is the solution. But for whatever reason we may have, illegal is still illegal and the government has something to do about it.

Yes and what the Government should do is crack down on the demand and not the supply. They know that this isn't the solution. I agree with Greg Palast, this is about Hispanic voter supression in the midterm elections.
