Do you think Arizona, with its “papers please” law, is the only state where law enforcement officials are approaching travelers and asking about their citizenship?
Federal immigration officials are asserting the authority to ask individuals about their citizenship far away from any border crossing or port.

Nine of the most populous U.S. cities and two-thirds of our nation’s population reside within this “Constitution-free zone.”
