Racial profiling or good police work, that’s the basic debate in Arizona over controversial new immigration bill, a protest caravan1 n. 旅行队;大篷车  on the way to Phoenix2 from L.A, illustrating3 how the local issue is fanning flames across the country. CNN’s Casey Wian has more.

The battle over immigration law enforcement in Arizona is now being waged on the streets of Los Angeles.

‘May the energy of your earth created without borders for all rise within us and give new life to our struggle.’

By an Illinois congressman4 who calls it profiling.

‘Well. Look at my face. Listen to my voice. I’d probably picked up in Arizona and questioned. Is that what we want in American?’

But Arizona sheriffs who travel to Washington D.C say it’s exactly what they need.

‘I’m telling you that most sheriffs I won’t dare to speak for, for anybody else, but most of us in law enforcement, see, welcome this legislation. ’

That legislation allows even encourages local law enforcement officers in Arizona to check the immigration status of anyone they have a reasonable suspicion is in the country illegally. It also makes lacking proper papers a state crime and allows citizens to sue state officials who don’t comply. Arizona’s State Senator Russell Pearce, a former sheriff’s deputy, sponsors the law.

‘We’re gotta take the handcuffs off of law enforcement. We’re gotta put them on the bad guy. Illegal is not a race. It’s a crime.’

Opponents say Bill No.1070 which awaits Governor Jan Brewer’s signature will lead to racial profiling of all Latinos in Arizona.

‘We are very concerned that 1070 will signify the end of the Latino community in Arizona. And I’m not kidding about this.’

But the law explicitly5 prohibits profiling. We read it to this protest leader in Los Angeles who was unmoved.

‘A law enforcement official or agency may not solely6 consider race, color or national origin in implementing7 the requirements in this subsection.’

‘But they may consider it. They may not solely consider it but they may consider it. It means in practice what they could do is claim that there are other factors involved.’

‘This law, not only is vague enough to create rogue8 police officers, detaining people just because of the color of their skin, but it’s also directly impacting thousands and thousands of families.’

The law has clearly divided law enforcement officials and residents both in and out of Arizona. They do agree that federal courts will likely have to decide if it’s constitutional. Arizona’s governor has until midnight Friday to sign the bill, veto it or do nothing. She does nothing. The bill becomes law.
