Allows them to stop them "FOR ANY LAWFUL CONTACT" not just on a whim.
The term "for any lawful contact" is so overly broad, it's effectively meaningless.
That’s a fair point, but that still doesn’t preclude that we now have to carry our passports with us all the time.
My mom speaks with a thick Irish Brogue, she’s been a citizen since 1960. If she blows by a red-light, Is it far-fetch to assume the officer would take her in because she’ll only be carrying a driver’s license on her? Which is no proof of citizenship?
Look, I would have no problem if one is arrested, bring you back to the police station and make you prove citizenship. You shouldn’t have gotten arrested in the first place.
