A brief guide to SB1070

Brief. Law. Lawyers. Get it?  I crack myself up.  With portions of SB1070 blocked by a federal judge today, I think it’s imperative that we break down what Arizona’s new immigration law does and does not say.  SB1070 allows Sheriff Joe to conduct midnight raids wherever and whenever he chooses False. Sheriff Joe already does • Read More »
