    Do you think Arizona's immigration law will automatically lead to racial profiling?

    Although three provisions of the law were rejected by the Supreme Court, one provision still stands: requiring police to question the immigration status of anyone they suspect to be in the U.S. illegally.  Advocates are telling undocumented immigrants not to answer questions from the police about their immigration status or birth place and have set up a hotline. The Justice Department has also set up a hotline for reports of civil-rights concerns or possible violations regarding Arizona's law.  How would the issue of illegal immigration be better addressed?

    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.

    Yes, yes, and *YES*.  It's never the official policy, but before you know it, there are quotas.  And, the putrid stench of the thin blue line means than they all have each others' back - even the rule breakers and macho renegades.

    Definitely yes. There's no way around it. The country never really stopped being racist and this is a law basically granting people the right to say it's okay to be hateful to others because they look different from you.
