    A federal judge has upheld part of Arizona’s contentious immigration law, rejecting claims that the so-called “show your papers” section discriminated against Hispanics. The ruling by U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton on Friday was on the last of seven challenges to the 2010 law. The section she upheld allows police in Arizona to check the immigration status of anyone they stop. Bolton ruled that immigration rights activists failed to show that police would enforce the law differently for Hispanics than other people. …

    A man has been arrested in the shooting death of a woman who was walking along San Francisco’s Embarcadero with her family Wednesday evening. Texas resident Francisco Sanchez had been detained as a person of interest south along the Embarcadero shortly after the shooting at Pier 14 after witnesses on the pier snapped his photo, which was quickly forwarded to officers investigating the killing.

  • Claire McCaskill: Kris Kobach ‘finger on the scales’

    Politico ^ | JONATHAN TOPAZ
    Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill on Friday accused Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach of “putting his finger on the scales” by disallowing Democratic Senate nominee Chad Taylor to withdraw from the ballot. McCaskill, an out-of-state Democrat, has come under scrutiny for a conversation she had with Taylor that shortly preceded his decision to attempt to drop out of the Kansas Senate race. Several reports have suggested that McCaskill urged Taylor to withdraw from the ballot, allowing Democrats to rally around independent Greg Orman to unseat incumbent Republican Sen. Pat Roberts. Orman has a lead over Roberts in a head-to-head race,...
  • Law enforcement agencies revisit SB 1070 policies after S. Tucson settlement

    Arizona Daily Star ^ | Carli Brosseau
    In the nearly two weeks since South Tucson’s city council approved a settlement with the American Civil Liberties Union over how its police department carries out SB 1070, officials from surrounding jurisdictions have pored over the terms of the deal. The agreement, which overhauled the department's immigration policy, has galvanized some Tucson-area elected officials to pursue procedures they believe better guard against prolonged detentions and racial profiling — two key concerns raised by critics of the law. “Now we have a case study, and we can compare notes,” said Regina Romero, a Tucson city councilwoman who has opposed the law...

    The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday refused to hear an appeal of a blocked provision of Arizona’s 2010 immigration enforcement law, dealing another blow to Gov. Jan Brewer in her effort to defend the law. The court declined to review the ruling that barred police from arresting people who harbor those living in the United States illegally. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals blocked police from enforcing the prohibition, concluding last year that it was vague and trumped by federal law, which already forbids harboring people in the country unlawfully. …
  • Like Bush, Many Republicans Are Moderate on Immigration

    FiveThirtyEight ^ | Nate Silver
    The Republican Party has grown more conservative over the past couple of decades. But news commentators sometimes wrongly imply that GOP voters take an extremist position on every issue. As I described on Friday, for example, Jeb Bush’s support of Common Core educational standards isn’t likely to hurt him if he runs for president in 2016; the issue is neither all that relevant to most Republicans nor all that divisive. If candidates running to Bush’s right are looking for a wedge issue, they’ll probably have some better choices.

    Way to go, Peach State! Gov. Nathan Deal yesterday signed S.B. 160 - a tough expansion of Georgia's H.B. 87, the Arizona-style law cracking down on illegal aliens, which passed in 2011. The La Raza lobby was left stunned and upset, believing Deal would bend to the prevailing GOP pressure for immigration appeasement in Washington, and veto it. They were sadly mistaken. Passed in the final hours of the General Assembly’s 40-day session - and despite fierce lobbying against it by ethnic intimidation groups, big business interests, and the ACLU - Senate Bill 160 was created to "fix" problems in licensing...

    SAN FRANCISCO - Gov. Jan Brewer is making a bid this week to salvage part of what's left of the law she signed in 2010 aimed at illegal immigration. Attorneys for the governor will argue Tuesday to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that Arizona has a legal right to arrest and prosecute those who, while violating any other law, harbor or transport someone they know, or should know, is in this country illegally. They want the court to reverse a ruling by U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton blocking the state from enforcing the measure as an invalid intrusion...

    PHOENIX — Gov. Jan Brewer — or at least her attorneys — will get a chance to argue that Arizona should be allowed to enforce a law aimed at those who harbor illegal immigrants. The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has scheduled an April 2 hearing to decide whether to overturn a trial judge’s conclusion last year that the law, a provision of the controversial SB 1070 approved by lawmakers, is illegal. Brewer contends that U.S. District Court Judge Susan Bolton got it wrong. Brewer is trying to salvage some parts of the 2010 law that she signed in front...

    Here they come again. California unions are once again meddling in Arizona politics on behalf of illegal aliens, and against the interests of their own American workers. The deceptively-named "Campaign For Arizona’s Future" - which was funded by the national mega-labor unions AFL-CIO and UNITE HERE is spending millions to try and defeat Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. The group, which calls its campaign "Adios Arpaio", is mostly comprised of the same Los Angeles-based activists which protested in 2010 after the passage of S.B. 1070. They claim to have registered over 36,000 - mostly Hispanics - in Maricopa County, AZ to...

    The federal government is canceling a model program that gives local police the ability to check the immigration status of people they arrest in Prince William County, Va. And that has proponents of the policy, called 287(g), seeing red. “In the debate last night, President Obama said he wanted to focus in on illegals who are committing crimes,” Corey Stewart, chairman of the Prince William County Board of Supervisors and a key force in the county’s 2007 adoption of the 287(g) program, told Times247.com in an interview Wednesday. “Then why is he eliminating the very program that does that?”

The network, which for now is just a sub-site on ABCNews.com, is launching a new series called “Arpaio Watch,” which is dedicated to monitoring the policies of Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio, and the impact they have on the Latino community. “The goal of Arpaio Watch is to monitor the effects of Arpaio’s policies on Arizona immigrant communities, and to report from the ground up about how immigration raids, disproportionate police stops and a disconnect between residents and law...

    Sheriff Joe Arpaio may not detain suspects based solely on a belief that they are in the country illegally, the 9th Circuit ruled. The federal appeals panel in San Francisco late Tuesday upheld a preliminary injunction in a class action over the sheriff's alleged pattern of racial profiling. Other issues in the action went to trial in Phoenix in late July. Manuel de Jesus Ortega Melendres, David and Jessica Rodriguez, Manuel Nieto Jr., Velia Meraz and the organization Somos America sued Arpaio and the Maricopa County Sheriff's office over three traffic stops during a 2006 anti-illegal immigration sweep. The plaintiffs...

    The last barrier to Arizona's enforcement of its landmark immigration law has been swept away - and by a left-leaning court to boot. The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco on Tuesday rejected the ACLU and its allies, by denying the coalition’s emergency motion for an injunction to block the key provision of S.B. 1070's. That provision, Section 2B, requires state and local police officers to attempt to determine the immigration status of any person stopped under state or local law if “reasonable suspicion” exists that the person is unlawfully present in the United States. Section 2B - the heart of...

    PHOENIX -- Erika Andiola's mother was pulled over by Mesa Police Saturday night for speeding but Andiola believes there was another reason, a reason police said is irrelevant. "According to the police she was going 50 miles per hour when it was supposed to be 40," Andiola told 92.3 KTAR's Jay Lawrence. "I actually went to speak to one of the cops and he didn't even want to answer whether he stopped them or not because of the color of their skin but I honestly felt that was the reason why that happened." Andiola added that her mother and two...

    PHOENIX (Reuters) - Arizona police on Wednesday began enforcing a controversial "show-your-papers" provision of a state law targeting illegal immigration as civil rights groups prepared to document allegations of racial profiling. Police in the border state with Mexico are now authorized to begin conducting immigration status checks of anyone they stop for any reason and suspect of being in the country illegally after a federal judge on Tuesday lifted an injunction against the provision requiring such checks. The measure, upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court in June, is part of a broad Arizona clampdown on illegal immigration signed into law...
