Finally someone that knows what they are talking about. He must have read the bill prior to forming an opinion! What a revolutionary idea! Possibly others should follow suit, like Obama, the city of Los Angeles and the Los Angeles Unified School District!
Lawyer denounces claims of racial profiling in AZ law

California smallA California based lawyer is dismissing claims by many that the Arizona law aimed at cracking down on illegal aliens amounts to racial discrimination.
Brad Dacus, founder of the Pacific Justice Institute (PJI), does not think opponents of Arizona’s immigration bill have a real argument. He notes that all attempts to dismantle the measure are merely political.

Brad Dacus PJI“If Arizona was caught in violating basic due process rights — if they were pulling people over without cause — then that would be one thing,” he contends. “But the law is indisputably constitutional, and any contentions against it are purely politically based.”

Last week, the Los Angeles Unified School District voted against the Arizona law and sought to place a dent in the state’s economy by ending funded employee travel to the neighboring state. The school district also pushed for history and civics classes to discuss the measure “in the context of unity, diversity and equal protection for all.”
The city of Los Angeles, which had more than $26 million in contracts with Arizona this year, showed its disapproval of the bill by proposing a boycott against the state, calling for actions like ending pension and municipal bonds. Gloria Molina, the city’s supervisor, called the immigration bill unconstitutional. She believes it goes “too far” and says she must defend the Constitution.
Dacus argues that the Arizona law is constitutional, and he does not think that actions against the state have legal basis.

“This boycott by the city of Los Angeles is purely political and has no legal foundation to support its legitimacy,” he explains. “The law passed by Arizona is a duplicate of the federal statute. The only difference is that the federal government isn’t enforcing their statute. This law is to explicitly prohibit any issue of race as a basis of pulling someone over.”

The boycott would end contracts with Arizona-based companies and would demand review of other contracts with the state that may be canceled.
