"Other states mull own version of migrant law"

If Arizona's new illegal immigration enforcement law is such a bad idea, then why are lawmakers in nine other states now considering enacting the very same legislation?

It will be interesting to see if the city of Los Angeles expands its recently announced policy of refusing to do business with Arizona due to its new law to any state that enacts such a statute.  LA's burghers aren't going to make any headway in dealing with their already massive budget crisis by petulantly boycotting a significant percentage of the entire country (as well as the Federal government, Congress has an identical law currently on the books), that's for sure.  That city has enough financial problems without causing itself even more trouble by taking its commerce ball and going home.

I'm sure Villainraigosa doesn't have to worry about the Feds. They may have the same law on the books as Arizona, but with them, it's all smoke and mirrors.

I came across a good debating resource that allows you to post comments and cast votes either for or against the New Immigration Law of Arizona without prior registration. I really recommend it: http://www.civiltalks.com
