Arizona Law

It is old news that the State of Arizona passed a law making it illegal to be an illegal alien, but it actually went into effect just recently.  Illegal to be illegal?  Does some kind of double negatives principle kick in here?

Critics, bleeding heart liberals to be sure, say the law will lead to racial profiling, but its supports argue that the law merely enforces existing laws.  Does any one else wonder why we need a law that says it's okay to enforce the law?  Do we now need a law that says we need to enforce the law that says we need to enforce the law?  If this makes sense to you, would you please explain it to me.  The logic escapes me entirely.
