Border Roundup: SB 1070 suit not on racial profiling

Border Governors Conference canceled

Racial profiling is not a major part of the federal lawsuit challenging SB 1070. Supporters of SB 1070 donated $500,000 to defend the law. Gov. Brewer canceled the Border Governors Conference. Hurricane Alex is causing floods along the Rio Grande.

I’m a legal American citizen and I must show my ID when:
  1.  Pulled over by the police.

  2.  Making purchases on my department store credit card. 

  3.  When I show up for a doctor’s appointment.
  4.  When filling out a credit card or loan application.
  5.  When applying for or renewing a driver’s license or passport.
  6.  When applying for any kind of insurance.
  7.  When filling out college applications.
  8.  When donating blood.
  9.  When obtaining certain prescription drugs.

  10.  When making some debit purchases, especially if I’m out of state.

  11. When collecting a boarding pass for airline or train travel.

I’m sure there are more instances, but the point is that we citizens of the USA are required to prove who we are nearly every day!

Why should people in this country illegally, be exempt!!!!! 

Why shouldn’t we guard our borders as closely as every other country in the world does?

                Go ARIZONA !!!

Well of course this its easy to sue over this law. The only thing blinding the masses from realizing why this law is unconstitutional is majority mentality, more plainly white mentality. THink about it, what if we had a law just like this except it would target suspected/illegal sexual offenders (ones who r not caught), the police would be stopping white males left and right, but they would never do that why cause its wrong, just like this law, check this article out it explains the DOJ strategy it will use in court

trivial things, you omitted kind of an important one: you must show your ID at the polls. I think I’m missing your point, though. None of the circumstances you listed require you to look suspicious. Also, it’s doubtful that your omitting to have your ID handy in any of those instances is apt to get you detained.
