( - Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-Ariz.) said on Tuesday that Arizona's immigration-enforcement law will cause people to be "profiled" in that state just as Trayvon Martin was profiled in Florida.

Martin, a 17-year-old African American, was allegedly shot by neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman in Florida in February, a case that has inflamed racial sensitivities. Zimmerman's father is White and his mother is Hispanic.
