Like "Born in East L.A.," without the funny

Police arrested a Puerto Rican man and threatened to have him deported. Even AFTER his mother showed up with his birth certificate. Imagine how much fun it's going to be in Arizona if someone doesn't strike down that stupid immigration law. Hispanics can, unfortunately, expect more of this kind of grief in the months ahead.

If you do a Google search you'll find dozens of such cases over the past ten years, including at least one where American citizens who *did* present valid passports and birth certificates had said passports seized and destroyed because sadistic border guards didn't want to let brown people in that day. One thing to bear in mind is that if ICE seizes you and sticks you into one of their gulags, you have no right to an attorney, and you are presumed guilty until proven innocent -- proven innocent by the attorney who you're not allowed to have, bwahahah! It is the perfect job for sadistic racist assholes and they make the best of it.
