Arizona last week passed a law authorizing local police to check the immigration status of anyone they reasonably suspect of being in the United States illegally. The law has generated sharp debate between advocates who say it is needed to combat illegal immigration and opponents who say it is an infringement on civil liberties and an invitation to racial/ethnic profiling of Hispanics by the police. In addition, some say the law will create tensions between police and Hispanics that will hinder general law enforcement.

It is ridiculous that in this day and age, and after a civil rights movement for African-American AND women, there is this level of racism and ignorance IN GOVERNMENT! The only benefit to the Hispanic community and all other immigrants from across the globe, is that an immigration reform is once again a priority to Congress. If Congress decides not to come to an agreement and pass something, we will fight for our rights through the courts, just like African-Americans did!
This is the type of objective data/information I wish we could see more of in order to avoid the 'subjective emotion charged components' on TV.

What was interesting was that ONLY 1 in 10 Hispanics have been asked about their immigration status.

Thanks for sharing Ricardo.
