The law requires state and local police to determine the status of people if there is "" that they are illegal immigrants and to arrest people who are unable to provide documentation proving they are in the country legally.
It also makes it a crime to transport someone who is an illegal immigrant and to hire day laborers off the street.
If it is signed by the governor or if it is not vetoed within the next five days, it becomes law. So if Mexicans or Mexican-Americans forget their passport or visa, they could go to jail? You could essentially be arrested for having an accent? That is simply insane. Supposing this is passed and strictly enforced, if one has Latino roots or a Mexican wife and has to choose between starting a business in Arizona and, say, anywhere else in the country, you're going to choose the non-Arizona option every time.
Where's McCain on this, I wonder? I know he's gone far right because of the primary challenge, but has he had nothing to say?
Update: As commenters Ken and PJK point out, indeed he has.
