AZ Bill Would Make It A Crime To Use A Bathroom Without Proof Of Citizenship

An Arizona republican, Carl Seel, recently introduced legislation that would make it a crime for a ‘person in the state illegally’ to use any public resource or facility. This would include sidewalks, roads, parks and yes, even public restrooms.

House Bill 2192 would make a crime to do anything, without proof of citizenship.
The 22 lines Seel wrote as part of AZ House Bill 2192 (2014) would allow the state to charge any person found to be ‘unlawfully using public resources,’ with a misdemeanor crime, for a first offense. A second offense would result in felony charges. The bill would also allow the state to seize cars found to be driven on a public road, by a person deemed to be ’not lawfully present’ in the state of AZ.

But why stop there? Seel’s proposed legislation would throw out those pesky little rights of the accused, namely, the right to present a defense. Seel’s addition to HB 2192 reads:

“Any record that relates to the immigration status or illegal presence of a person in this state is admissible in any court without further foundation or testimony from a custodian of records if the record is certified as authentic by the government agency that is responsible for maintaining the record.”

Anytime I hear a person call themselves a Republican, I know for a fact that they're about to be an asshole.

1. There's no "about to be" about it.

I wonder if Crazy Carl could give us proof of his citizenship. It can't be something in the water because there ain't much water there.

8. So... technically...

This would also mean that being inside the court room, you know to stand trial? (Or does a later bill plan to strip this away too?), is illegal.
