Arizona, the Latest Battleground over Illegal Immigration

Hosted by

Success in closing the border in Texas and California has pushed more illegal crossings to Arizona, creating high anxiety in the southern part of that state. Arizona officials claim there's a lack of federal protection, and the new law requires local police to detain anyone they suspect of being in the country illegally. The law won't go into effect until this summer, but already court challenges are being planned.
