Route 8 West
While traveling West on Route 8, the highway dips towards the Mexico-US border. All vehicles were directed into one lane and then stopped by U.S. Border Patrol. In the car I was traveling in, we were immediately allowed to pass along with no need to show any identification. The irony, of course, is that although I am blond and blue-eyed, I am also an immigrant.
We must reform/inform immigration policy in this country. The recent laws in Arizona and the customary stopping of cars well within the USA (we were not at any actual border) reeks of extremism.
