  1. Roger Algase, Attorney at Law's Avatar
    The articles by Henry DeMell and David Isaacson about the Arizona immigration law both contain important and valuable points. But I think that they miss the central point, which is that anyone who looks Hispanic, legal or otherwise, can be locked up under this law until his or her immigration status can be verified by ICE or Customs and Border Protection. (For some reason, the ;aw doesn't mention USCIS, which is the agency actually responsible for issuing green cards and most other immigration benefits.) How long will it take to have someone's status verified? We should all live so long.

    The proviso that was hastily added to the final version of the law to the effect that race should not be the "sole" consideration in determining whether to suspect someone of being illegal (actually, the provision in question doesn't say "illegal"; it says "unlawfully present" - presumably the legislators and governor thoroughly understood Donald Neufeld's Kafkaesque 51 page memo from last year explaining this distinction, which would make them the only people in America to have done so) is meaningless.

    Race cannot be the "sole" reason for suspicion. Well then, race and what else? The law doesn't say. During the Nazi period, there was a joke about a storm trooper who blamed the Jews for starting the war. But, to be "fair", he admitted that it wasn't only the Jews. The bicycle riders were also at fault.

    Can someone now be arrested in Arizona for looking Hispanic and riding a bicycle? Or for looking Hispanic and not riding a bicycle? This brings to mind another joke, from Communist Eastern Europe. Three men were together in a jail for political prisoners. They asked each other why they had been arrested.

    The first one said "I was arrested because they said I was for Slansky", Then the second one said: "I was locked up because they said I was against Slansky". Then they both turned to the third prisoner and asked why he was there. He said: "I'm Slansky".

    One way or another, the Arizona police will have no trouble finding a way to arrest every Latino they come across. That is the fundamental, if not the only, purpose of the Arizona law.
