The 2010 Version of America's Jim Crow South

Yesterday, the Arizona governor signed a the toughest immigration law in the entire country.  Basically, anyone with a tan can be stopped on the street by the police if there is a "reasonable suspicion" (read: basically, if a cop is having a bad day) that they might be in the country illegally, unless they have proof to the contrary.

This is all types of bad and Obama has come out strongly opposed to this new legislation.

Stephen Colbert basically breaks down the bill the only way he knows how, by making fun of it. It's probably the most poignant break down of the bill and it's so sad that you HAVE to laugh. Sigh.
