Suro in WaPo on Arizona’s immigration law

Faculty Fellow Roberto Suro wrote an article for The Washington Post lambasting Arizona’s immigration law, and how it is “an invitation to a shootout in which there will be no winners.” Suro shares his thoughts on the law since the US District Court has stalled Arizona’s SB 1070 since it is believed that many parts authored are unconstitutional. “The relentless focus on catching people who aren’t supposed to be here is bad enough; a long marshals-vs.-sheriffs shootout is a dangerous distraction. No matter what kind of new immigration system you want to build, lawsuits over who handles traffic stops won’t get you very far.” The full article can be read here.
