    Given the comment, it should be noted that Arizona’s law is weak compared to the requirements to prove citizenship in Mexico, EU, etc. when a perpetrator is stopped for a crime or traffic infraction. A person illegally in the EU or Mexico is at a minimum going to be deported. If the person was stopped for a traffic infraction, it’s probably a fine. If stopped in a crime, then jail time if sentenced, and then deportation.
    .
    The idea that it’s even debated is more evidence of how the Rule of Law is dead in the U.S., with race, gender, nation of origin, political party, and other respect for persons are given, rather than treating all under the law the same way.
    .
    If a person was stopped for running a stop sign or was stopped in committing a felony in the E.U or Canada, would it even be debated that they would have to identify themselves? That is what Arizona’s law did when it was in force. Citizens have to identify themselves to police when they break traffic laws or commit misdemeanors/felonies, so why not people from other nations who do so?
    .
    The U.S. is the only nation that has allowed 60+ million, that is to say 1/3 of the total Mexican population of 180+ million (110 “official”), to simply cross the border and to give them the benefits normally attributed to citizens. There has been no movement of people since the world began of similar magnitude, not even after WWII.
    .
    No other nation ignores its own constitution (or charter) in order to allow those of another nation to simply walk in and take over, breaking 4 of the 10 commandments merely by coming here.
    .
    International laws don’t allow it either.
    .
    The media in their usual dishonesty, tried to make it like it was something unfair. Hardly. Anyone else must ID themselves in a traffic stop or a criminal investigation. Why not those illegally here?

    If I have to show my drivers license then they have to show their papers. Anyone who doesn’t want to have their picture on their voter registration is hiding something. It’s the same as someone who wants to buy alcohol or tobacco and doesn’t want to show their identification.

    Relax. Boody chose to go to Duat, so he’s only going to be having his heart taken out to be weighed against the feather of Ma’at. How could that possibly hurt?

    My invitation is still open. Let’s all go to Arizona and pretend we can’t speak English.

    Just out of curiosity, which 4 commandments are broken by people going to Arizona?

    @N: this used to be what separated the US from those bad ol’ European and South American nations: you could walk down the street and not worry about a cop or soldier getting in your face and demanding to be shown your “papers.” Even with our post-9/11 “security” hysteria, court cases confirm that absent a crime or seriously suspicious behavior, the police don’t have the right to demand identification. Trouble is, how do you have your cake and eat it? That is, how do you preserve this perhaps unwritten but very much expected right of citizens to move about un-hassled, while not also giving it to non-citizens, including those who are not here legally? It’s a tough issue. I, not living in AZ, am not willing to throw out the baby with the bathwater—that is, I am not willing to move one step closer to a police-state so that AZ can more easily handle its problem of porous borders.

    As I have said for two days, if your heart is heavier you get fed to an eager monster named Ammit or Ammut. Look her up.

    @puddleglum1066

    If the police demand your ID you have to show it or they make things difficult for you.

    Which is an indication of how far downhill things have already slid. Go back and watch some of the post-WWII/early Cold War semi-propaganda movies, and notice how this is what defined the Evil Empire: innocent person is walking down the street, minding his own business, and suddenly, “Your papers, please!!” And from there the film devolves into some police-state nightmare… the moral being, this kind of thing never happens back here. (Of course it did, especially if you weren’t of the correct skin color or ethnicity, but not often enough that we had to consciously accept it).

    Must be something in the water. I have friends who moved down there ten or so years ago, and every summer, when they come back to Ill-Annoy to escape the AZ heat, they seem a little bit more intolerant.

    @Happy, happy, happy!!! (Good luck, Aaron)-
    It also depends on where you live in AZ, or at least it used to. Northern AZ used to be very tolerant but it’s been many a long year since I spent time in the Flagstaff area.
