Allen West Tweets His Love for Arizona Immigration Bill

In a Tweet that's sure to endear him to the 22nd Congressional District's roughly 11 percent Latino population, Allen West gave an enthusiastic endorsement of Arizona's ultra-controversial, totally unconstitutional and pretty-much-racist immigration bill.

The bill, whose fate now rests with the Arizona governor, would allow law enforcement officers to arrest people without a warrant so long as they have a "reasonable suspicion" that those people are illegal aliens. Racial profiling, anyone?

And you can bet West is eager to use the same bill to go after Muslims.
