The immigration situation in Arizona esta que ardeesta que arde, I told my dad last week, meaning that things seem to be at a boiling point in that state.
The new immigration law in Arizona makes it illegal for immigrants to be in the state — regardless of whether you’re just trailing through it — without proper documentation. Police can question your immigration status only if it is part of a larger investigation, say, if you were stopped for speeding or failing to yield to a pedestrian.
So if you weren’t born here, and you don’t have your papers, things could get interesting.
But there’s good news!
Thanks to changes made to the law enactedlast week by Gov. Jan Brewer, police cannot pull you over just because you look the part. So a brown person like me should be able to get away scot-free.
