"What do all of these incidents have in common? They all occurred in
states that have passed “Show me your papers” legislation. However,
none of these states have legally enforceable mechanisms for
implementing the legislation, as their enforcement dates are being held
up in the courts. As a result, legal experts argue that the police
actions noted above are illegal and a reflection of racial profiling."
