    Maricopa County elections officials will reportedly need to spend thousands of dollars to reprogram security equipment after an apparent theft at an election facility. On June 20, surveillance footage within the Maricopa County elections building in downtown Phoenix captured an employee taking a “security fob” and keys off a desk before putting them in his pocket. According to police documents, the employee was questioned about the alleged theft, but he denied taking the security fob and keys. The next day, detectives went to the man’s home and saw part of the keys in his vehicle. He was arrested and told...

    The GOP-controlled Arizona Legislature on Tuesday approved a proposal to ask voters to weigh in on a ballot measure this fall to make it a state crime for noncitizens to enter the state through Mexico at any location outside of a port of entry. The Arizona measure, approved by the state House on a 31-29 vote, would allow state and local police to arrest people crossing the border without authorization. State judges would also have the power to order people convicted of unauthorized border crossing to return to their countries of origin. The state House voted along party lines, with...

    Arizona Gov. Katie Hobbs has remained mum about her recent veto of legislation aimed at curbing China’s gruesome forced organ-harvesting trade, which targets detained ethnic and religious minorities, mostly Uyghur Muslims, Tibetans, Christians, and Falun Gong practitioners. The April 10 veto has proponents of the legislation and human rights activists scratching their heads. Over the last year, Texas, Utah, and Idaho have enacted similar legislation, and legislatures in Missouri, Ohio, and North Carolina are debating similar measures. The bipartisan bills would prevent health insurance plans from reimbursing individuals for any organ transplants in China or other U.S. adversaries. They also...
