    presumed to not be /presumed not to be

    A person is "presumed to not be an alien who is unlawfully present in the United States" if he or she presents any of the following four forms of identification: 1,2,3,4.

    The quoted part is an excerpt from a law of Arizona which will come into effect this Thursday. What interests me is the language using presumed to not be? Does it sound a little odd to you? Thank you.

    *Not a teacher

    Presumed to not be and presumed not to be mean the same thing and sound correct in that case
