What we have here...failure to discriminate.

Imagine a man with no tags on his car was pulled over by police in Alabama.  Imagine that he spoke with a foreign accent, and that his only identification was a foreign ID.  Imagine he had no passport or proof of legal immigration status.  Imagine that man was arrested until such documents could be obtained.

NOW IMAGINE THAT MAN WAS WHITE.

He was white, and as soon as his legal status was confirmed he was released.

That's called 'equal protection.'  Oh, snap!  

Now, I have issues with Alabama's immigration law.  I don't like it.  However, I like that the federal government is ignoring the immigration problem (the need for enforcement and serious reform) a hell of a lot less.

exactly as it should have happened.

Once his legality was verified, he was released. No huhu.

His bad for not having his stuff with him.
