Elegant Chic,

The Arizona Immigration Law (as presented earlier), REQUIRED that ALL individuals carry their immigration papers with them at ALL TIMES to validate that their status in the country is legal.

It also empowered even local law enforcement officials (even traffic cops), to demand / scrutinize / verify the paper work of anyone they SUSPECTED.

There are supporters of the law, and there are people who believe that this is yet another extension (of sorts) to the Patriot Act, which was (simply put) WATERGATE on a NATIONAL SCALE.

The Comic Strip shows AZ (Arizona) as a Authority Figure, demanding the Statue of Liberty to show it's papers confirming it's legal status.
