Federal Judge Puts Much of Arizona’s Immigration Law on Hold

Hosted by

Crucial provisions of Arizona's new immigration law will not go into effect today as scheduled, but court actions will continue for years. Some demonstrators are being arrested in Phoenix, and Sheriff Jo Arpaio plans an afternoon "sweep" of Hispanic neighborhoods. We hear about yesterday's ruling that core parts of the law are unconstitutional, a decision that's likely to wend its way to the US Supreme Court. In the meantime, what about boycotts, declines in convention business and continued anxiety in a state with a 30% Hispanic population?
