Being an American citizen who happens to be of Hispanic ethnicity on both my mother's and father's side I agree with N15PCA, I don't see a problem here.  Kids should have IDs by the age of 11 for safety reasons alone.  Being a Hispanic male who grew up in a gang filled part of the city of Chicago I started carrying an ID young, cause ya don't want give cops a reason.  A cop even warned me once that he could arrest me for fitting a description of a suspect (young Hispanic male.....*sigh*) and since I had lost my license the week before and didn't have it on me at the time I couldn't do jack shit about it.  I see this law as a benefit and tool for officers to combat crime.
 
As for the cat-person law.  Good on Arizona as well, that's how zombie invasions are started.

Yay for Arizona for their bans on cat-people. It's a great time to be an Arizonan right now. (/sarcasm).
 
Seriously, I find this hybrid thing weird. Franky though, I don't care. I guess it helps stop people from getting weird and messed-up ideas through science...I already find the whole stem-cell research and the medical technology being pushed to the limit totally surreal - hell it scares me sometimes. Well if it helps stop the creation of new strains of pathogenic microorganisms and/or a zombie pandemic, then I guess it's a good thing. But whatever.
 
As for the immigration law, it's not the best decision, but it's a start.

It's funny that you bring up Jean Grey.  Last time I check she was a (l'll be in a Fictional person) a US citizen.  So that would be wrong to make her have to go around with a ID on her at all times. 
 
To quote a great comedian Dennis Miller " If you are coming into the united states at least sign you name of the guess list so we know that you are coming it." 
 
I guess it to much to ask for people to respect are laws. 
 
Has to what  Gozertc, hitsusatsu11 Gregomasta said.  High fives all away around.  
 
@ Gregomasta 
 
I'm a Hispanic has well.  Just because we are Hispanic dosn't meen we don't want the law to be enforced.  
 
If federal law is so bad why dosen't the congress and Obama have chance to change the law then and allow everyone to come in if they want to.   
 
In till that happens (which it won't) the people that want illegal immiigrants to come in this country  don't have a leg to stand on.  As far has the law gose.

They can live in Mexico were they don't have to put up with are laws then.  To quote Jean Grey "We license people to drive, not to live."

I'm sorry, but the "Go back to where you came from," thing doesn't test well amongst people who know how the U.S. was formed. Granted there are illegal aliens who should go through the proper channels to work here, telling natural born citizens that their quality of life should be lower literally because of the color of their skin simply to combat a problem that is most concerning to the type of people whose entire careers involve unskilled labor is an asinine prospect and should never have been entertained by anyone willing to call themselves a politician. I also don't want to be "that guy," but seeing as how this law establishes a de facto mandate on anyone who's skin color is at least a shade darker than mocha to carry something on their person at all times in public to be presented to law enforcement upon request under threat of immediate arrest, I must draw some parallels to a particular sovereign state that did a similar thing to a particular group of people.  
 
Also, in b4 out-of-context hyperbole = I'm more right than you because the ridiculous thing I said that you said would happen, in fact, wouldn't.

I also think the same way if were someone who was Canada and they were here illegal immigrant. 
 
Who said that natural born citizens shouldn't allowed in this country.  Don't put words in my month. 
 
So who cares if you have to show ID to police officer to prove that you are legal or not.  I would do it in a heart beat and then I would thank them for doing their job and protecting are country. 
 
The founding fathers in the United States left England for religious and political freedom not economical one.  That's the different.  Last time I check that can vote for their president of Mexico and they can woriship freely in their country.     
 
So are you liberation.  I very conservative.  So I don't if you are more conservative than me or not.

@oishi_47:
The veiled reference there is heard loud and clear, and you'd have a point if we ONLY required "Those slightly darker than mocca" to have ID.  But we don't.  Every non-citizen is already required to have an ID of some kind while in this country.  This has been the law for many decades, all be it a very rarely enforced law, but the law.   
 
As mentioned before my wife is an Australian, last time I checked she wasn't anywhere near mocca, and in fact a few shades lighter than mocca.  Yet she is required by law to carry a little card on her stating she is a legal resident alien.  When her mother who visits (who is even paler) she is required to carry her Passport and produce it when requested.   
 
So tell me again how this marks anyone of any particlar skin color, language choice (again my wife and mother in law speak fluent spanish and have been known to speak it in public.  SHOCK!), religion, or what have you?  We are not marking people, we are not singling folks out, we are merely enforcing laws that are already on the book.  If you have every LEGAL reason to be doing whatever you are doing you have nothing to worry about.  Visiting from overseas?  Produce your passport.  Legal Resident?  Produce your green card.  Citzen?  Driver's Licence, Passport, naturalization card, etc.  Illegal alien?  Well they've been called "undocumented workers" for a while so what's wrong with trying to check their documentation?

" Is it just me or is the state of Arizona starting to go down the drain in recent weeks? Ban on catgirls? The next thing you'll know is that they ban ALL forms of anime from their state.
 
No, no, I don't think you read it quite right. They didn't say anything about the banning of certain media; they'd put a ban on intentionally trying to create a human and non-human hybrid species. Yes, more ridiculous than you originally thought.

@N15PCA:  @Gozertc: Giving no deference to the possibility of a legal resident who may not keep their wallet on them at all times? The situation of someone who is not a resident but is legally here is actually a different matter, not this one. Also, do you really believe that Caucasian immigrants are as common in Arizona as Latino immigrants are? Do you really not think that the law in question is easily abusable, or is it that you think that the police are as infallible as the laws themselves? If everyone honestly believed that the police would handle the enforcement of such a law fairly without any consideration to race, class, etc. no one would have a problem with it. It isn't liberal to be skeptical. I, like any other U.S. citizen, am allowed to question such things. Of course, it must be nice to have an optimistic naïveté about it, but if I did, I would feel like I was abdicating my responsibility as a citizen.

So glad I can now get my left wing politics from an anime website, too. Because politics are what I'm here for.

@DawnMaier: Furries, Cat-Girls, i'ts all bestiality-encouraging porn that I don't have time to specify to me. Had no idea there was a difference. As I said before, people that like it are entitled to their own opinion, but a ban on it really isn't that big of a deal. Oh, and about $00pah Nin10doh, it's only rated adult because of the one scene someone put..........odd images......on one of the entries, not the ladies on the menu. Believe me, MOST of it is pretty clean. I recommend you guys watch it if you like anything Nintendo or comedy related. Again, here's the link: http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/476976
