A Florida bill introduced by Republican state legislator William Snyder would emulate Arizona’s SB-1070, which requires police to accost suspected illegals—only Snyder’s version incorporates a visa waiver list.
Who’s on the waiver list? Western Europeans—France, Germany, Luxembourg, etc.—and Asian nations only.
Although Snyder, a former Miami policeman, insists it’s “unconstitutional” and “immoral” to use race or ethnicity in making arrests, his bill states clearly that anyone with a Canadian or waiver-listed passport will be “presumed to be legally in the United States,” and will not need documentation proving so.
Salon says it all: “I hope this gets the attention and opposition it needs to kill this bill—and immediately.”
