On Racial Profiling in Arizona....by Maj. Gen. Jerry Curry
As a black American, back in the days before civil rights laws were passed and before Obama was even born, the least of my problems was â€œRacial Profiling.â€ In fact, I would have welcomed a little racial profiling in place of many of the indignities my family and I had to suffer. So please forgive me if I donâ€™t seem overly sympathetic about â€œsuspectedâ€ illegal immigrants in Arizona having to show identification
papers if they commit a crime. Immigrants must adjust and conform to the society of their host country. The country is not required to adjust and conform to the values, traditions, religion and customs of the immigrant.
Supposedly being asked to show legal identification papers strikes fear into the heart of the immigrant community. The immigrants I know, including those from Europe, are made
of sterner â€œstuffâ€ than that, though. Throughout Europe legal citizens are asked to show identification for all sorts of things, and few take offense at the requirement. I know because my family and I lived in Europe for more than a decade.

The Major General is right. The only ones who are concerned about this are liberal/progressive/Democrats, especially those who want the votes of Hispanics. If you took NY and CA out of the mix, the vast majority of all Americans favor the laws of the land, the one that Arizona passed and the ones that 29 states are planning to pass as well. As it is now, a clear majority favor having strict immigration laws and having them upheld.
