Draconian immigration law has been passed in Arizona, that like the cactus will prick eveyone, legal as well as illegal. This law gives the enforcement agencies a carte blanche. They can, with "reasonable"cause stop "anyone" (nion-white, brown, Hispanic etc. whether wearing poncho, mantilla, sombrero or strumming a large guitar and singing La Bamba or not) and demand indentification. This is an invitation to abuse and is going to have serious consequences......harassment, violence, boycott, name it, and, it will solve nothing. This is a quick political fix, by desperate politicians, like "now I am for reform, but then again I am against " McCain (who is facing a tough race for the Republican senatorial nomination in Arizona). This is the same Arizona that had refused to recognise the Martin Luther King day, until it was forced to back down, when it was faced by outrage and threats of boycotts.......already Immigration lawyers have cancelled their convention there ( at least they know which side their bread is buttered!).
France is pushing ahead to pass law bannong the "niqab". To add some "mustard" to it, visitors to France will also be subjected to it. How long will it take for other European government to follow suit? They will cravenly wait to see the effects of the French law, before falling in line. Britain with its large pool of Moslem extremists has an excuse...they have an election going on and it is likely that no party will win a majority. This will allow them time to do nothing. The Brits do not like minority governments and the last time they had one was 1923 , 1929 and 1974.
