It’s hard to keep up with the hundreds of bills coming up in the current session of the Arizona legislature, but a friend asked that I look into SB1465.
A Google search turns up no articles on this issue, other than a link to the actual bill, so I had to do some research. Luckily the text of the bill is really really short, but enough damage is caused in a sentence.
The first thing to notice is that this bill is being sponsored by Senator Gould, who is also the sponsor of SB1308/1309, the “14th Amendment” bills. You know there is going to be some right-wing extremism in anything he writes.
SB1465 is a bill that nulls all Consular ID (CID) cards.
In a nutshell, if you have a CID, that is not valid as identification in Arizona.
This would mean that the person, a migrant, would then not have any valid ID in Arizona… ahh, now the racism becomes apparent.
