Report an illegal!

As everyone in America and a good chunk of Canada,Europe and South America knows by now Arizona has some pretty tough immigration laws. Many supporters of the new laws say that it will in fact cut down or possibly eliminate illegal immigrants in that state thus making crime rates lower and the economy better. Opponents of the law point out that police can basically stop people if they have "reasonably suspicion" that the person is an illegal immigrant. In English that means they can stop people for looking a little "too Mexican" and because of that a lot of people are calling the law racist and a slippery slope to racial profiling. Not helping the situation are neo-Nazi groups who have used this as an opportunity to get some free publicity. The video below explains some of this.
