The state of Arizona wants to change its immigration laws. It wants policemen to be responsible for finding illegal immigrants. This used to be done by the US government immigration police. Critics say the move will lead to racial profiling. Some compared it to Nazi Germany where soldiers would ask people on the streets to show their papers. Hong Kong police carry out this duty in the city as a matter of course.
