SB 1070: Living in the Irony & in the Oblivion

Arizona governor Jan Brewer proposed legislation that criminalized the illegal immigration. Some citizen of this state accuses the immigrants to be responsible for vandalism and criminality.

This law allows the police officers to make arbitrary detentions to persons to investigate if they got legal identification documents, in order of a reasonable suspicion.

Can somebody say what it’s a reasonable suspicion? Who determinate the process to make a detention?

Ain´t hard to know how? Just because of the color of the skin, when they are not white or black people of course they should be Hispanic. That it’s a form or Racism. And violates the civil rights and go against the 4th Amendment of the American constitution: “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

The people that it’s crossing a border between the US & Mexico just do it because in their country are so few opportunities of a good paid job or a peaceful life, away of wars and insecurity. Most of the Hispanic people go there to work, to have that famous American dream.

Arizona citizens and the ones that supporting this law in the US are forgetting their roots and don’t want to look back to see they also came from immigrants.
