vv I mean in Arizona, not all across the USA, eh? As @Xprez mentioned.
But even all across? Having a "large number" not being Latino points to the truth: there's a BIG problem with Mexican illegals inside America. Y'all just admitted it yourself.

@5Cats : You know that Obama's administration so far deported more illegals than Bush's right?

@obhwfgirl: LOLZ! Amazing! You libtards always make me lol! So bloody stupid...
#1 When Bush "deported illegals" it was BAD, RACIST! remember? Obama does exact same thing = Sainthood!
#2: Mexicans are leaving on their own because the economy (Obama's fault) is terrible!
#3 King Obama decreed an amnesty to add 800K workers... to a massivley UNemployed America! Not only "illegal" but also "immoral" of BHO to screw the America's (Legal) Citizens YET AGAIN, eh?

(2) a large number of illegals are NOT Latino.

That's an outright lie. Proof or stfu.

@Xprez: Well said! Well done!

@obhwfgirl, I live in AZ near Phoenix. You have no idea what you're talking about. John Morton has refused to take a lot illegal immigrants under Obama's orders. 99% of illegals here are latino. It is a problem here that the feds are not giving a rat's ass about. If you're far removed from the problem, maybe you shouldn't speak on it. Plenty of people killed here every year that would be alive if someone was not in this country illegally. It's not too funny or cute if that someone is a member of your family. And most of these people are not productive members of society. They try to tell you they are, but they are not. If you wanna be sympathetic to people that have no intention of doing things the legal way, why don't you take them under your roof?

Of course not, because that would require looking at facts that DON'T support your ignorant worldview.

As for this guy, yeah he's being a douche to the cops, but he's protesting the law. Kudos to them for taking it in stride. PROPER authority respects people's right to protest and solves the problem amicably. And if all it took was to run the plates, why do they even bother asking for ID? The cops are setting up checkpoints because a law says they can but (1) they target everyone to avoid the liability of racial profiling and (2) a large number of illegals are NOT Latino.

Driving from Bisbee north there was one of these set up in the middle of nowhere (north of Tombstone), we had just burnt a doobie but we are white in a new Mustang so they waved us through after only a brief once-over. I was burglarized twice in Tucson and some mariachi band in Sonoma has pretty good musical gear accordingly. Anyone who has lived in AZ understands the crazies coming north from Mexico, crime it up and zoom back south. Not to put a big racist thing on it but Mexico really needs to fix their frikkin' country so the need to come north and pillage may be slowed.
Gawd, I hated that state. And this bozo is really dangling his butt, but he's white so he gets away with it. The real racism is that if this dude were hispanic he would have been arrested and beaten to a bloody pulp, not necessarily in that order.

so, why don't they have a single police officer, ask him for his license, and be done with it.

a police officer is allowed to verify your right to drive a car on a public roadway, as he is simply looking out for the safety of others on the roadway. american valid driver's license = no hassle

plus, if this guy REALLY didn't want to be held up, he would've shown proof of his citizenship, he WANTED to be hassled in an attempt at a viral video and 15 seconds of fame.

They're just doing what their boss told them to do...they weren't aggressive with him, and he was polite to them when he was saying 'no thanks'.

I still have scars from politely telling a couple of police officers 'no i don't want to get in your van thanks' when i was 20.

erm.... come to think of it i think i may have used the phrase 'drat off' instead.

you can tell these cops were only following orders. they were not upset with this man questioning orders they got from someone else. now if this would have been rogue he would have gotten his ass handed to him and the book thrown at him.

That took some balls, however, it is all fine and dandy till a Mexican, Asian or someone with a foreign accent tries this stunt. The LAW stated clearly that they could not stop ANYONE specifically to ask about immigration status or documentation. They were allowed to do so during the process of ANY other infraction though. the ABUSE has already started, it ONLY goes downhill from here. As for those of you who complain about illegal immigrants, ALL of you ARE illegal immigrants or children of. The land belongs to the Native population, and look what has become of them!!! What happens when they declare all of us non-natives illegal on THEIR soil, which IS their right. As for stating that Nazi's would have killed him instead of letting him go, it started with Jews ONLY being made to identify themselves. Then the killing began!! It is only a matter of time on this slippery slope.

That took balls, but the bottom line is this: He thinks he knows the whole, but he doesn't know the half. Those cops were way too cool with this guy and he's luck he's not in jail. Bearded young punks will never be in charge of anything but are led to believe that they are. He's obviously another white non-nice individual, thats why they let him go. Those police are doing their jobs and if he thinks they're nazis, nazis would have just shot him, end of story.

Unfortunately I look like a Canadian so I get singled out and interrogated quite often.

Wait, so you look like this?

And it's not unfortunate, you should be proud, eh?

America land of the free

Two hundred seven sovereign states in the world, like 180 of them have freedom.

Why do people assume that just because this is America land of the free gives all men the right to live here we cannot house everyone in the world. Fact is we can't go to other countries and have the same rights as we do here. Funny thing is some people come to the US and live the laws of their country here.

We get these stops in Washington state too. Unfortunately I look like a Canadian so I get singled out and interrogated quite often. This guy is my new hero. From now on, I won't tell them if I am Canadian or from USA. Oh wait . . . I have Washington state plates on my car, eh.

Just kidding. We don't do that sh*t up here. Washington is a blue state and not part of the new Confederate States of America. These cops might be US Border patrol but they live and breath Arizona.

"The cops did nothing wrong in this video, in fact they were SUPER nice to him!"

Agreed. The police were polite and professional.

The problem I have is with whoever instructed them to do that job in the first place.

You shouldn't expect to be stopped and made to account for yourself when just walking down the street or driving down the road. Not when you've not given the police any cause to suspect you've done something wrong. Not when you live in a free country.

Merely existing should not be cause for the police to check you for wrongdoing.

It appears the only justification for their suspicion that the occupants of these cars may be illegal aliens is that the cars are driving on roads near the border.

That's a little weak.

One of the reasons he was sent on his way was: the cops "ran his plate" and apparently it was clean.
The cops did nothing wrong in this video, in fact they were SUPER nice to him! If someone suggested in any way that I was acting like a Nazi there would be... trouble.

If the Laws being enforced are wrong, it's really not the cops' fault.

And again: If Obama did his job, or told Holder to do HIS job, then the State of Arizona wouldn't HAVE TO do things like this!

It's sad how people are ripping on this guy for standing up for his rights. Many men fought and died for these rights a mere 236 years ago.

he obviously sought out checkpoints just to try to bait the officers into doing something and catching them on camera. what a pathetic piece of shi t

HolyGod - my guess would be on the 8 outside Yuma,
on the 10 near Tucson and the 19 outside
Nogales. But I'm guessing. I know I pass through
two of these when I drive to Green Valley. Usually
one is closed so only 1 slow-up.

I live in Arizona. I have never seen a checkpoint. Where is this exactly?

@ miasmaat - this is normal anywhere near Mexico. I'm in San Diego and theres one of these checkpoints between here and Los Angeles, another west of San Diego on the I-8

@ MacGuffin - I don't necessarily think these checks are good either. But we do have to find the illegals, and the highways are fenced off, once on them they can't run. I have mixed feelings on this. But it's NOT as if all roads are as represented in the video.

is this normal in Arizona? Is there some kind of manhunt on for someone or something? This is unheard of! We're doing random checks - do you have your papers. It's really a lot like some police state.
