Description

Reporters Perla Trevizo and Carli Brosseau collected thousands of records documenting local law enforcement calls to Border Patrol to check a person's immigration status. Their conclusion: Although the intent of Arizona's toughest-in-the-nation immigration law was to standarize local immigration enforcement, more than a year after its most controversial provision took effect, the state is left with a patchwork of policies and interpretations across jurisdictions. Data collection is so inconsistent and so incomplete that there's no way to determine how police are implementing the law — or whether they are committing the systemic civil-rights violations opponents feared when SB 1070 was passed.
