Politico, hardly a hotbed of conservative thought, says that Americans by nearly a 2 to 1 margin want statewide laws similar to what Prince William County passed in 2007.
On another topic, a large number of voters — 61 percent to 34 percent, want an Arizona-style immigration law in their state.
The Arizona immigration law allows police to check the immigration status of those they have stopped or arrested, if they suspect the person to be in the country illegally.
Notice here that what they’re talking about is a policy that has law enforcement ask about immigration status of persons stopped, not just those placed under arrest. Now that the Supreme Court has ruled that such inquiries are lawful, perhaps it’s time to bring back what was originally adopted before Chief Deane’s pointless whining about the cost of putting cameras in patrol cars encouraged the Board of Supervisors to modify it.
The people want it and it has the blessing of the Supreme Court. What are we waiting for?
