"Pros/Cons Of Arizona Immigration Law." Like with every other major issue in the United States, there are pros and cons to the new Arizona immigration law. On the pros side, almost everyone agrees that something needs to be done about the out-of-control USA/Mexico border situation. Also on the pros side, Americans need only look at what is happening right now in Mexico where drug gangs are killing citizens and police alike in a bid to control delivery of illegal drugs to this country. No America citizen wants that violence into spread to this country.
On the cons side of the new Arizona immigration law is the very foundation of what has made the United States of America great for more than 200 years. Those rights include American citizens not being hassled or detained by police based on either racial profiling or some other heavy handed government notion. Most white Americans do not worry about this problem, because they will be assumed American citizens based on the color of their skin. However, Americans of Mexican decent can and do worry about this new Arizona immigration law and that makes it a big con for them.
