The heated debate over Arizona’s Support Our Law Enforcement and Safe Neighborhoods Act, which requires police officers who, in the course of a lawful law enforcement action, come to a “reasonable suspicion” that a person is an illegal alien, to ask for a driver’s license to verify that the person is in this country legally, has rapidly spread across the country.
