Arizona Law Simplified

(e) Personal possession of registration or receipt card; penalties
Every alien, eighteen years of age and over, shall at all times carry with him and have in his personal possession any certificate of alien registration or alien registration receipt card issued to him pursuant to subsection (d) of this section. Any alien who fails to comply with the provisions of this subsection shall be guilty of a misdemeanor and shall upon conviction for each offense be fined not to exceed $100 or be imprisoned not more than thirty days, or both.
Arizona Law will require anyone over 18 arrested or detained for reasonable cause to show this card if there is cause to believe the person is unlawfully in this country illegally:
A person is presumed to not be an alien who is unlawfully present in the United States if the person provides to the law enforcement officer or agency any of the following:
1. A valid Arizona driver license.
2. A valid Arizona nonoperating identification license.
3. A tribal enrollment card or other form of tribal identification.
4. A valid United States federal, state or local government issued identification.
If they can not, they are detained until they can be turned over to the Federal authorities for violation of immigration laws.
There it is in black and white. What is the problem?
Is there anyone out there, ANYONE, that expects NOT to be asked for ID when they are stopped by a police officer?
