Arizona’s harsh immigration law cancer not spreading across nationby Hugh Holub on Jan. 29, 2011, under border issues, immigration law reform, politics
When Arizona passed its harsh anti-immigrant law SB 1070 there were widespread claims that the Arizona “solution” would spread all over the country.
Initially many states launched efforts to pass their versions of SB 1070.
But, according to the Washington Post, many states are re-thinking jumping into the anti-immigrant fight due to practical realities like state budget problems….
As state legislatures convene this month, lawmakers across the country who had vowed to copy Arizona’s strict measure cracking down on illegal immigrants are facing a new reality.
State budget deficits, coupled with the political backlash triggered by Arizona’s law and potentially expensive legal challenges from the federal government, have made passage of such statutes uncertain.
