The ANTI -CIR, ANTI-Latino groups are putting their "ole boy" support behind the very racist ANTI-Immigrant, ANTI-Latino bill being recommended in Arizona. If passed, other states are looking to follow the AZ example. The ACLU has clearly documented the negative impacts this xenophobic bill would have, particularly on Latino neighborhoods. All brown people would be subject to being detained (24 - 48 hours or longer)until they can provide their birth certificate, social security card, and IF the police believe the documents you hold are, in fact yours.
Do me a favor. Look in your purse or wallet. Do you see a birth certificate? Do you carry your social security card? Remember, your drivers license isn't good enough. In fact, your birth certificate and social security cards are NOT good enough. It is up to the discretion of the arresting officer whether he believes you or not.
Currently, Kris Kobach, one of the worst anti-immigrant offenders, is "TRAINING" arpaio's masked goons so they can identify an "illeegal" when they see them. With someone like Kobach involved, what could he be teaching the goons? "They are brown. They have an accent. Their hands are dirty from their manual labor. They drive trucks or SUVs." Sounds like most Latino citizens I know!
Arizona's RACIST RACIAL PROFILING proposed law is despicable! IF this Racial Profile bill passes, the Department of Homeland Security should pass the "Save the U.S. from Domestic Attacks" bill. It would only be in force as long as the xenophobic ANTI-Immigrant law is in place. This bill will provide equality in Racial Profiling.
New Bill: "Save the US from Domestic Attacks"
Content: With the high rate of Domestic Attacks being performed by local militia groups (e.g. Hutaree militia) and the majority of local militia groups are primarily white males, local law enforcement is empowered to stop and detain ALL White Males for no cause. They will set up "anti domestic terrorist sweeps" (ala arpaio sweeps) which every law abiding citizen should support. During these sweeps, white males will provide their birth certificate, drivers license, social security card. However, this documentation may not be sufficient, and detainment will be guided by the consideration of the arresting officer. Law enforcement will strip search as needed to search for guns, drugs and unlawful documents. Those detained may be detained for 24 - 48 hours or until the individual provides proof, until law enforcement is satisfied, of their non participation in militia groups. The majority of the arresting officers will be minorities and will be masked to protect their identities from potential harm. All arresting officers will by trained by Domestic Terrorist experts: Jesse Jackson and Emmanuel Cleaver.
Both Arizona's bill and this ANTI Domestic Terrorist bill are similar in nature. Both are ridiculous. NEITHER should be passed or supported!
