You "Look" Illegal To Me!

Arizona passes immigration law that urges law enforcement to detain people that appear to be illegal immigrants.

(The above link is simply news. What lurks beneath is my personal opinion, and not the viewpoint of the SLLU.)

Unbelievable. How exactly does one identify what an 'illegal citizen' looks like? (If they should be harassing them in the first place.) While this law was largely created in response to the very real and very brutal drug cartel violence that is becoming prolific in border areas, this response goes to show what civil liberties we are willing to strip away in order to feel safe. What's going to happen after the next attack on the level of 9/11? Mandatory I.D. cards? I.D chips?
