PS…If you live in Arizona…you might want to keep your birth certificate in your pocket.

There were protests over the weekend all over Arizona after Governor Jan Brewer signed a bill last week that would allow police to ask to see legal documents proving a persons citizenship. Bill SB 1070, makes it a misdemeanor to lack proper immigration paperwork. If police officers form a “reasonable suspicion” that someone is an illegal immigrant, they are required to determine the person’s immigration status. Rev Al Sharpton says he is now ready to go to Arizona and walk the streets with the people to protest the bill.
