From one of my local news stations...can you spot the grammar error? It kind of jumped out and ambushed me. :/

And now I need to go to bed. Also making a pledge right the fuck now to NOT wait (again) until the last minute to do my lab assignment for my CIT class for this coming week. Ugh. *collapses*

Arizona May Require Hospitals to Check Citizenship

PHOENIX – Republican lawmakers want to widen Arizona's illegal immigration crackdown with a proposal to require hospitals to check on whether patients are in the country legally, causing outrage among medical professionals who fear becoming de facto immigration agents under the law.

The medical industry ripped the bill Monday as it was scheduled for a hearing by the Senate Judiciary Committee. Doctors envisioned scenarios in which immigrants with contagious diseases such as tuberculosis would stay home from the clinic or hospital and put themselves and the public at a grave health risk.

Rest of the article here.

I will not disagree that we need to get a handle on illegal immigrants; that it is a problem. But because Arizona is a border state, it's not rocket science to figure out who's going to bear the brunt of the scrutiny. Requiring hospitals to check someone's citizenship is going to end up encouraging racial profiling, period.
