As a Latina the thought that my rights as an American Citizens, might become collateral damage in the quest to hunt down illegal is frightening. The fact that over 60% agree that the inconvenience to those of us with brown skin, is a fair price to pay, bothers me. Your right not all pro SB1070 are racist, but they are predominately white and have no clue what it is to be insulted with "show me your papers" As a caring human being I find it repulsive when innocent people are treated as less than human.
