Letter to the Editor
What people who support Arizona’s new immigration law don’t understand is that it’s not a law that applies to illegal immigrants. This law applies to everyone and it’s a huge expansion of government power to oppress all people equally, including people who are visiting Arizona from other states. So if you get pulled over for using a cell phone you might find yourself detained while you prove that you’re a legal citizen. This isn’t just a law that applies to people who look Mexican. The worst part about it is that it it opens the door to the idea that the government agents can walk up to citizens and make demands that the people have to comply with. It’s a big step towards the formation of a police state.
