You have got to be kidding me. That is so incredibly wrong I don't even know what to say. The store owner should be arrested. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/Cuss.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="cuss">

<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">What followed was a telling encounter underscoring the tensions in this country over immigration and ethnicity.<br><br>
When Genao told Richardson “he did not have the right to ask all those questions,” Richardson pulled out a membership card for Rhode Islanders for Immigration Law Enforcement, a group that seeks curbs on illegal immigration.<br><br>
Then, he lifted the phone receiver and threatened to call immigration authorities, Genao said.<br><br>
“He [Richardson] grabbed the phone and said, ‘I can call ICE [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] anytime I see an illegal immigrant,’ ” said Genao. “He also said, ‘I can make a citizen’s arrest.’ ”<br><br>
Genao, a Rhode Island state employee, is a native of the Dominican Republic and a U.S. citizen. He speaks fluent English. He said his friend — who declined comment — is also a Dominican native and U.S. citizen. “There is no problem with his status,” said Genao. “He is legal.” State records list both as registered voters.</td>

OMG. There should be some sort of legal action that can be taken against this bozo.<br><br>

I am waiting for the flood of emails that will start praising this guy as as a "True American Hero". Probably with the subject line, "WAKE UP AMERICA".<br><br><br><br><br><br>
Gross.

Too bad he didn't try to do a citizens arrest, then he could be thrown in jail for false imprisonment. I also wonder about that organization he supposedly belongs to. Are the legit, and do they support what he was doing?

That is such crappy behavior - and I have to say - not surprising at all considering that I've even seen sentiment expressed here on MDC to the same effect.<br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"> it is such ignorance.

What a rascist UA violation that dude is. If I lived anywhere nearby I'd boycott his crappy ass store. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:<br><br>
WTF?

What the heck? On top of the guy being a racist jerk, I would never show my social security card to some random dude at a store who wanted to see it. Identity theft anyone? I don't even carry my social security card...it stays in a strong box at home along with our birth certs, marriage certs etc. You're not supposed to show your soc. number randomly -- that's one of the ways they get stolen. What a jerk. Of course, being of Irish descent, I'm sure he wouldn't have asked me, the bigot.
