Existing law:

The new law simply states that they can take an ADDITIONAL STEP to verify your immigration status if they cannot produce information who they are that can be verified. As far as I know, in Michigan you do not have to identify yourself to any police officer unless you're under arrest or driving a motor vehicle.

Arizona is one of the few states that have a "stop and identify" law that basically means they can pull you over and find out who you are for any reason. How come nobody was bitching about this law for years?

How it was before the new law:

Arizona cop pulls over mexican. He asks mexican his name. Mexican doesn't answer, he goes to jail and is released.

New Law:

Arizona cop pulls over mexican, he asks mexican for his full name, mexican doesn't answer. He's turned over to INS and is deported if he is found to be illegal.

How the fukc is this bad for the legal people of this country?>
