The Arizona law is disgracefully immoral and the Slate article is stupid... but this should tell us something about the danger of setting a context-specific precedent. The Supreme Court has this precedent to look at when it's looking at the Arizona law. I've heard a lot of you arguing for context-specific precedent on a lot of issues (largely related to measures targeting better outcomes for historically-oppressed groups - women, minorities, etc), so hopefully this gets you thinking outside your box a little bit.
