This is a viable solution that no one has thought of, so I urge you to read this.
Today, the new immigration law in Arizona, SB 1070, went into effect. However, the full force of the law has been blocked by Judge Susan Bolton. Judge Bolton filed an injunction against a section of the bill that stated that, if someone was stopped while committing a crime, and they were unable to provide identification nor speak fluent English, they could be questioned about their immigration status.
Detractors of the bill are crying profiling, stating that police will be able to practically stop anyone they want. For example, Hillary Clinton stated "I don't think there's any doubt" the immigration law would lead to profiling. Those in favor of the bill cite the fact that only those who've committed a crime will be subjugated to the new law and only after several factors have been met.
The debate continues, and seems to be elevating with this injunction. I fully believe that if a solution is not found, this case will reach its crescendo and peak with the Supreme Court. But I believe that I have a solution that will eliminate the possibility of profiling and satisfy proponents of Arizona's new law:
Check the immigration status of everyone.
Every single person who commits a crime in Arizona should have their immigration status checked. There would be no profiling because everyone would have to participate, thus satisfying critics. Any illegal immigrants would be found, including ones that may have been missed, thus satisfying proponents. This possible solution seems so simple, I am shocked that no one has mentioned it before.
But there you have it. Is this the solution to the problem in Arizona? Maybe, maybe not, but I believe this is an option that must be looked at.
