Possible discussion point: the President ignores the facts to take a political jab...again.

At a Cinco de Mayo reception at the White House Wednesday evening, President Obama launched another attack on Arizona's new immigration law. "We can’t start singling out people because of who they look like, or how they talk, or how they dress," the president told the crowd. As he had in earlier criticisms of the law, Obama ignored the law's specific stipulation that any check on a person's immigration status can only come after a "lawful stop, detention or arrest" when a person is suspected of breaking some law -- that is, as Arizona lawmakers explained in a footnote to the bill, it must come "during the enforcement of any other law or ordinance of a county, city or town or this state."

Hope and change?
