Arizona's legislature has passed a bill that would require police, if they suspect someone is an illegal immigrant, to verify their status. The governor still needs to sign the bill, and opponents are asking her to not do so. They say it'll lead to more racial profiling -- police, they say, will start asking Hispanic people, and only Hispanic people, to prove they're here legally. Which isn't fair to people of Latino ancestry who also happen to be American citizens.
Supporters of the law say they're doing this because federal immigration enforcement isn't getting the job done.
