I do not think the part of the Arizona Immigration law left intact will lead to racial profiling. Law enforcement in Arizona or anywhere else have the right and authority to ask for identification when they stop individuals. We are required to provide identification and insurance papers when a law enforcement officer asks for them. I do not understand what is different in this situation.
While I do feel racial profiling should not be tolerated and if it is proven then appropriate action should be taken against the individuals involved. If there was a valid reason for stopping an individual proper identification should be required to be furnished. It is not about whether you are a citizen or non-citizen. It is a request by law enforcement officials and should be honored.
The question asked how woud the issue of illegal immigration be better addressed and in this I would say that the federal government should enforce the law and not ignore the safety of places like the border state of Arizona. In addition there needs to be immigration reform legislaltion that makes sense and is bi-partisan. I agree that a hot line is appropriate to report civil-rights concerns but it is the state of Arizona's responsibility to make sure all Arizona's laws are not violated. Each state has the responsibility to ensure no state law and if it within the rights of states to enforce federal laws they should also ensure they are not violated.
There is no doubt that there is an illegal immigration problem in the United States and it needs to be resolved in a responsible manner that makes sense. When states have issues with illegal immigrants, the federal government should work with the states not against them.
