So if I were an activist, I’d break the state. See, the law is not just racist, it’s stupid. It mandates zero tolerance, and has this big greed button for everyone to hit.
Any state citizen who believes a jurisdiction is not giving 100% can sue that jurisdiction (regardless of citizen’s relationship with that jurisdiction). If they win they not only get all their legal expenses paid but they get $1000 per day between bringing the suit and its success. kaching, kaching, kaching.
So, how do I break this law? I need a state resident/citizen. And I need a bunch of white volunteers who will be driving rental cars. The volunteers do things to get pulled over for traffic stops. Cameras roll, and the sting listens for the absence of one little phrase or variation thereof: do you have proof you’re a legal resident of the nation?
What, you didn’t ask? You weren’t given an Arizona state driver’s license, nor a passport or green card or birth certificate. You’re not going 100%.
Give me a habit of this in a jurisdiction and I have a demonstration of a defacto policy – unwritten, but followed nonetheless.
At that point the pain gets obvious.
If, of course, I were an activist.
