Anna Gorman in a L.A. Times story reminds us of the potential dangers of local police involvement in immigration enforcement by looking at the Chandler (Arizona) Roundup in 1997, in which local police shook down the Mexican ancestry community in a Phoenix suburb in an effort at immigration enforcement. For critical analysis of the Roundup. see Mary Romero & Marwah Serag, “Violation of Latino Civil Rights Resulting from INS and Local Police's Use of Race, Culture, and Class Profiling: The Case of the Chandler Roundup in Arizona.” Cleveland State Law Review 52 (2005): 75–96.
