I’m heading to Arizona today. My cousin, Edna, spends the winter in Mesa, and she needs my help to drive back to Ohio. I hope to do some blogging about our cross country trip. In particular, I’m interested in finding out what people are thinking and saying about the new immigration law in Arizona. Just how draconian is this piece of legislation? Please post your opinions and comments about Senate Bill 1070.
Is boycotting Arizona a good way to make a statement? What are the problems Arizona is facing with immigration that prompted them to write and pass this law that requires police to check the immigration status of anyone who they deem suspicious of being in the country illegally? Are they targeting Latinos? What are some possible solutions?
