Romney has decided to request Federal support to have state officers arrest illegals based solely on their immigration status. Stating that "It's one more thing you can do to make this a less attractive place for illegal aliens to come to work," Romney has decided to to go straight for the illegal immigration debate jugular- the rule of law.

A great article on this can be ofund at Newsmax.

Commentary on it can be found at Redstate.

A great comment in the NewsMax article by the Local ACLU:

"This will overwhelm the State Police force, it will hinder real law enforcement, real community law enforcement, and it clearly will lead to racial and ethnic profiling," said Carol Rose, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Massachusetts. "That's not effective law enforcement, or effective immigration policy."

Good point Carl "Red" Rose (my nickname!) It's a very novel idea, police do their job, now they are busy. HMMMM, never thought of that. Well, I guess it would lead to racial profiling since the very essence of immigration is about different races converging on new ones. Do we only enforce laws that involve white people?

What he misses is that his argument against Romneys plan is a huge argument for it. Its obviously a sincere problem if enforcing a law will "overwhelm" state police.
