PINK UNDERWEAR: Arpaio arrests 6 year old without legal ID

BTC - The next series of Arpaio or Pinal County arrests in Arizona based on SB 1070 drawbacks will be selectively titled PINK UNDERWEAR.   This premiere blog will be dedicated to the 6 year old girl turned over to ICE earlier this weekend who now has an international arrest record. Her ten little fingers will be entered into a biometrics database as a criminal alien.

It's not like no one saw this coming.  Sen. Chuck Schumer grilled the bill's author Russel Pearce during a hearing on SB 1070 concerning the plausability of infants being required to show legal ID to evade arrest based on the language of this law this April.

When a "Your Paper's Please" clause navigates past the SCOTUS

BTC - One of the biggest problems we have in the world today is the ability to single someone out for pre-crime or for fault of doing nothing wrong at all. That can be achieved in Arizona for not presenting the proper citizenship papers on cue. In the old country and now in Arizona, the local police may initiate you into the criminal justice system, automatically, for being present without proper identification. Joe Arpaio's prison system in Arizona is one of the least humane in the nation, famous for dressing inmates in pink boxers to encourage sexual assaults amid prisoners. More people will be introduced to this criminal justice system based on appearances only. As caucasians enter the minority demographic, no one is really immune to crossing America's miliarized police systems.

Sit down and listen to this because it no longer really matters who you think you are in America, this precedent affects everyone.

SU PAPELE'S, POR FAVOR? (Listen. Just skip Arizona.)

"So the court advised Arizona it would "raise constitutional concerns" if immigration checks "delay the release of detainees for no other reason than to verify their immigration status." But isn't that inevitable? Say I'm stopped on the street or at a traffic stop, an officer asks my immigration status, and I exercise my right to remain silent: Wouldn't verifying my immigration status by definition extend my detention longer than would otherwise be the case? Because the Arizona law hadn't been implemented, there were no facts before the court to say so, but there's little doubt those questions will be raised as soon as the law is implemented. I have a hard time seeing how verifying immigration status wouldn't "delay the release of detainees." How could it not?"
