Argument: Arizona law will harass, jail Latinos w/o papers on them
"Editorial: Arizona immigration law a throwback to a sadder era." The Scramento Bee. Apr. 28, 2010: "Arizona is a state of about 6.6 million people, with about 15 percent foreign-born, according to the U.S. census. Under the new law, those who can't immediately prove they're working in the United States legally may find themselves detained by police as they go about daily life."
"Arizona goes over the edge." New York Times Editorial. April 17th, 2010: "It would make not having immigration documents a new state misdemeanor, and allow officers to arrest anyone who could not immediately prove they were here legally. That means if you are brown-skinned and leave home without a wallet, you are in trouble."
"Arizona law will invite racial profiling." Wiked Local. May 3, 2010: "It’s a scary piece of legislation that will invite racial profiling. What does an “illegal immigrant” look like? In Arizona’s case, it will be someone with brown skin. [...] How many innocent, law-abiding, legal citizens, some whose families have lived in Arizona for generations, will be hassled?"
