    All the negative responses for this bill are about "citizens rights" being violated and the reason given is because of cops just asking "out of the blue" for papers please. I don't see this as being an issue. I think their hands are full enough already without having the extra duty of just stopping people at random to question someone who looks Mexican.

    I would have a problem with that myself but I don't think this is what will happen.

    So, that being a non-issue, what other reason would one have to oppose a law that is basically the same as Federal law and actually enforcing it properly?

    And the question of papers. Just what are the documents an alien in country should legally have prior to becoming a citizen? Those who oppose it seem to question "just what documentation are you referring too?"

    Those who support it (as I do) seem to assume that some form of identification or temporary work status status papers would be issued to someone who crosses over into our country from Mexico.

    Surely they had something to show in order to obtain a drivers license or work visa.
    I am consistently on record and will continue to be on record as opposing concealed carry.

    And there is a huge, practical difference between "giving someone [e.g., LEO] your name" and producing some form of government-issued ID. Let us know when that suffices at a law enforcement stop such as a DUI checkpoint.

    I truly want to know what the people who say this will lead to a police state think is the answer to the illegal aliens in this country? Fining employers? In the bill and federal law (which is rarely enforced by the feds). Would Arizona putting up a fence with guardtowers and armed guards be OK (since the feds won't)? How about minefields on the border? Too violent and indiscriminate? Bounties on turning in illegals to the police? (Bet that would be effective in this economy.)

    The other comment Hopyard keeps coming up with is how long his mom or he went without ID. The reason we need ID for planes now is because the feds won't profile terrorists, told people not to resist (aka be cowards) and took any weapons away from the good guys who fly. Try to go a day now without ID. You won't drive, cash a check, get a drink (if you look under 40), use a credit/debit card, board a plane, get into any secure building or a bunch of other things. And guess what, if you are a suspect in a crime they will hold you until they get a positive ID on you, citizen or not.

    Oh, and how stupid was the law before, a man driving a car with drugs in the trunk, no driver's license or insurance or registration, covered in MS-13 tattoos, speaking no English, swearing in Spanish with a Mexican ID in his pocket, stopped 100 yards from the border couldn't be asked to show if he was here legally.

    I can't remember where I saw it, but the quote that comes to mind is "The constitution is not a mutual suicide pact".

    Absolutely.

    I think yes, but don't know whether or not the Feds would allow it.
    I have no problem with strong border security. It is absolutely the first thing that must be done, because without strong border security everything else is a waste of effort.

    How about minefields on the border? Too violent and indiscriminate?
    No, problem provided the mined area is very very well marked with many warning signs and good lighting. I've seen mine fields and "shoot to kill zones" surrounding ammo and nuclear storage on military bases.

    Good fences make good neighbors.

    Bounties on turning in illegals to the police? (Bet that would be effective in this economy.)
    Maybe. I know from experience that a few years back picking up the phone and calling INS to report an individual who was working who should not have been, accomplished nothing. I got blown off. If there would be a reasonable response this could work--- but then you also have to be sure malicious people just don't report their neighbors who are lawfully here for purely malicious reasons.

    The other comment Hopyard keeps coming up with is how long his mom or he went without ID. The reason we need ID for planes now is because the feds won't profile terrorists,
    Not exactly. The airlines wanted ID checks in the 1990s to protect the integrity of their frequent flyer miles programs. They didn't want people transferring the mile by buying a paper ticket with an assumed name. Security became an excuse for the airlines to get what they wanted.

    And even today, you can still board a plane without a government issued ID, you just need to jump through some hoops. People get wallets stolen and lost while traveling. People lose ID, for various reasons. I've seen people let through security with just a checkbook for ID. Do you really think you get trapped in NYC if your wallet was lifted? Do you think you will have to walk back to Arizona?

    Try to go a day now without ID.
    I know urban dwellers who don't need cars because they use public transportation. They don't need a DL. They don't need an ID for any everyday activity. There are plenty of ways to handle financial transactions without ID, and ID is not required to use a credit card--in fact merchants are breaking their contract with the card company if they ask for ID.

    In any case, banks let folks open accounts with the Matricua card issued by the Mexican consulates.

    The Matricula Consular de Alta Seguridad (MCAS) (Consular Matriculation of High Security) is an identification card issued by the Government of Mexico through its consulate offices to Mexican nationals residing outside of Mexico regardless of their emigration status.[1] Also known as the Mexican CID card, it has been issued since 1871,[2] and cardholders could be either legal or illegal aliens in the foreign country they are residing in.

    And guess what, if you are a suspect in a crime they will hold you until they get a positive ID on you, citizen or not.
    The police are always welcome to take fingerprints and photos. But, you have to be charged with something to be held more than briefly--Terry stop. Again, the Hiibs case did not make it mandatory for people to carry ID; only that they state their name.

    I can't remember where I saw it, but the quote that comes to mind is "The constitution is not a mutual suicide pact"
    Yes, and the other quote which applies is the one about those who would give up their rights for security deserve neither security nor liberty.

    At the risk of going further off topic, I have had three family members murdered (Grandfather murdered in 1980 and step grandma and aunt murdered in 1996). Premeditated murders at that (that's murder 1 in a death penalty state). Guess what, I'm still against the death penalty.

    I've already been injured by an illegal. I was t-boned at an intersection by an illegal immigrant and a Mexican one at that. I'm still not interested in giving up my rights so that the government can ACT like they give two craps about what happens to me or my family.

    I grew up in a border state, so don't start preaching to me about how my feelings would change if I felt the impact. Not gonna fly with me.

    The police ask for your license and registration because you are required to carry them if operating a vehicle. It has nothing to do with identifying yourself.

    As I said before, the ONLY thing you need to do to identify yourself is to give your real name. That is all that is required.

    I would change the word "act" to "pretend" with regard to the unlawful migrant problem. Both the Feds and AZ talk a good talk, but actually do little to solve the problem.

    The new AZ law is a pretend simple answer to a complex problem. They are wanting citizens to give up their rights for a make believe
    solution.

    I almost wish I had'nt started this thread, but I guess this blister needs squeezed. Reading all the replies, I don't see where anybody has really changed their mind. I have a lot of respect for the opinions of people ON THE BORDER that are really impacted by this, not the ones bussed in to demonstrate. Ironically though, at this rate, more and more of us are going to be "living on the border" if things are'nt fixed soon.
    I hope there is a solution that does'nt tear us apart.

    That's the $64 question. We're already torn apart.

    In the pursuit of equal rights, we've decided that some have more than others...

    This issue, this bill, is just one more crack in the already unstable social network of our society.

    you guys are funny, Your all upset and you don't even live here. You can cry about it when your state does the same thing. I support the new law and hope the rest of conservative America does the same thing.

    P.S. Do you guys want a new basket ball team " los suns " might be looking for a new place to live.

    Not true, DL would be sufficient.
