Stay the Hell Out of Arizona

Arizona is signaling that the way they will combat charges of racial profiling will be to demand proof of citizenship from everyone the cops come in contact with. So if there is something that a cop thinks that he can write you a ticket for, you will have to prove your citizenship or proof of a legal right to be defiling the fair streets of Arizona with your presence.

In short, if you are a U.S. Citizen and you do not have an Arizona driver's license, you had better carry your passport (or passport card) whenever you are in Arizona. Otherwise, you could be held in one of their local hellholes and then handed over to ICE, who will deport you to whatever nation they feel is appropriate.

Why risk any of that shit? Just stay the hell out of Arizona.

I say we give Arizona back to the American Indians. Or Mexico. Whoever we stole it from most.

We tried to make good use of the land, but it apparently just makes us crazy. Best it be returned.

Anybody that wants to stay can just be rounded up into reservations. They'll want a large, impenetrable, deadly wall. It will give them comfort. They like walls, for some reason.

I never plan on visiting anywhere south of Flag. And when the time comes to spend a bit of money the question will bw asked if they support the new law and if so adios bigoted bastards.

Build a wall around Arizona and turn it into Heinlein's Coventry.

Build a wall around the South and turn it into the Republic of Gilead. That would make them happy for a month or so.

Some of us live here. I live in Flagstaff, a lone bastion of sanity within the state, where we're already opposing the law.

Y'know, the cops already ask to look at my DL when they stop me.

How's this any different? Because if I'm an illegal, I (might) get sent back, assuming ICE doesn't decide -- or get told -- they've got an overcrowding problem and turn everyone loose?

Comrade Misfit said...

What's different about it is that most DLs are not sufficient to prove citizenship, according to Arizona. So if the AZ cops pull you over, you had better be carrying your passport or passport card.

Otherwise, you might wind up being a guest of the county for awhile.

Roberta X said...

Hey, if states are handing out DLs to illegals... C'mon, you know they shouldn't. Driving in particular is a privilege, not a right.

There's a path to citizenship. The illegals are not taking it -- and nobody in either party is talking about making it easier to get in doing it by the book. Nope, it's just yammer about amnesty for people who broke the law to get here.

Nice deal. Some damn "government of laws, not of men." What, the powerful can already murder and rape and get winked at, now their maids and pool boys get a similar deal -- and the rest of us, poor fools, all we get is screwed.
