It looks like the end of this week will be crazy on immigration. Arizona's SB 1070 is currently set to go into effect tomorrow, July 29. There has been no word from the federal court in Phoenix weighing the various challenges to SB 1070 and sitting on motions for a preliminary injunction that would prohibit the state's immigration law from going into effect. Everone anxiously awaits the court ruling, which might even come out today. Being vigilant, the Mexican government has sent human rights monitors to the U.S./Mexico border. Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio is preparing a mass outdoor detention facility for the undocumented immigrants that presumably will be arrested. Protests are planned.
In short, we can expect lots of news for sure from Arizona in the next few days. Stay tuned!
