strip-searching Grandma

But the intrusion on the privacy of an American citizen is far greater than that envisioned by Arizona SB 1080.  Camping does not break any laws which would permit a law enforcement official to make “lawful contact” and inquire about our immigration status.

I understand that we cannot allow people to cross the border willy-nilly; a border cannot be maintained without specified ports of entry.  But in this situation it is obvious that an American family camping on the American shore is not attempting to gain unlawful entry into the United States.  The regulation seems like another case of strip-searching Grandma while Mohammed Atta strolls past without being questioned.
