The Better Angels of Our Nature: Responding to Arizona's Immigration Law

Mr. Alexander, one of my concerns in this piece is civil rights. Specifically, as a U.S. citizen I am concerned about my own civil rights and the civil rights of other Hispanics like me who will be profiled under this bill. I am not talking about the Middle East in this post. I am talking about the United States of America and my concern about my civil rights in the U.S.A. as a U.S. citizen. If you read the entry for civil rights under the Merriam-Webster online dictionary you will see exactly what I am talking about.

Main Entry: civil rights
Function: noun plural
Date: 1658

: the nonpolitical rights of a citizen; especially : the rights of personal liberty guaranteed to United States citizens by the 13th and 14th amendments to the Constitution and by acts of Congress
