Did you hear that the American Civil Liberties Union issued a "travel advisory" last week? Yep, ACLU offices in two dozen states felt it necessary to warn those traveling to Arizona that they may be subject to racial profiling.
This warning is no doubt in response to Arizona's new law slated to take effect later this month. This is the one specifying that if you're stopped there for another offense, and fail to come up with the requisite documentation proving you're there legally, you know, like a drivers' license or passport, they can check your immigration status so long as they don't racially profile? By the way, this new rule mirrors federal law on the subject, but is far less rigid (the Feds can stop you anywhere, anytime and for any reason, or no reason, to ask for your "papers").
So the ACLU worries that Arizona authorities might, and I stress might, use this law to unfairly racially profile. So they're providing those planning to visit the Grand Canyon State with a warning, and pamphlets telling them what they'll need to know if and when it happens.
