Ouch, I actually do know what apartheid is. I suppose I just worded this question poorly. Nor do care I about leftists or votes. I don't affiliate myself with any party, I don't even live in the US.
When I first read about the new law it reminded me of how black people in South Africa had to carry papers around every where they went. I do know that that was one small aspect of the apartheid regime, it was just the part was called up for me.
The reason I asked this is because there are a lot of people in Arizona who look or are hispanic and have been living in the state for generations. It seems to me that this law is one more step down the slipperly slope of racial profiling. I'm sorry for the ambiguous way I worded it originally.
Though I must admit I was offended when you two started claiming to know exactly where I was coming from after reading three sentences I had written, I do understand why you said that. I don't have a problem with the US trying to keep illegal immigrants out of their country. My problem is when darker skinned people start being harrased just because they look like most of the illegal immigrants.
