Good local view of reactions to the new Arizona immigration law. It covers activists on both sides, the law enforcement angle, as well as the legal challenges on the state level, bolstered by expert commentary from nationwide organizations and law schools.

Very well written and insightful article about the ground-level legal, law enforcement and community mobilizations in response to SB 1070. Clearly shows the consequences of the passage of this law, both to legal and illegal residents and to groups far beyond Arizona's borders. Definitely brings the larger issues into sharp focus for the reader.

why isn't the sweet Ashley Cooper labled a critic of the law? instead it is the critics of the lawsuit. a thousand to 1? really? totally biased no quotes from the "critics of the lawsuit" Much talk about racial profiling but not much sense that it is really being challanged on teh supremacy clause.
