ARIZONA: Not everyone supports discrimination

Why is the tea party not protesting a law that allows government officials to enter a person’s car, home and even into a church? These government officials can stop people who are not even suspected of a crime if the official (police officer) believes the person is an illegal immigrant.

What happened to the right “to remain secure in one’s own person” (Article IV, U.S. Constitution)? Aren’t members of the tea party against government intruding into people’s lives? Does this only apply to white people?

The law in Arizona is racist and discriminatory in a democracy.
