Just a little PSA for those driving around the borderlands this weekend: I’ve personally talked to two (non-white) people who have been stopped by police not for any driving infractions but simply to check immigration status. Just so you know, outside of designated border patrol stops in these areas, this is NOT normal. One was driving to LA from Phoenix and the other was driving in the desert between Tucson and San Diego. They are both Americans, one Latina and one black woman. If you live within 100 miles of a border (that includes coastlines, so 60% of Americans), please know your rights (or lack thereof, I guess).
