A hotline run by civil rights advocates has been fielding queries from people wanting to know their rights if questioned about their immigration status.
The advocates are asking police departments not to enforce the provision, as a way to gain cooperation from immigrants in reporting crimes. But not enforcing the requirement could expose the agencies to lawsuits from people claiming authorities aren't complying with the law.
Outside the Immigration and Customs building in Phoenix, Prescott college student Brooke Bischoff said she doubts provisions prohibiting racial profiling will succeed.
She said testimony during a recent trial involving racial profiling accusations against the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office indicated that training to avoid discriminatory practices was "cursory."
Advocates also planned to gather Wednesday to address the Phoenix City Council about their concerns about the law, and a march to the Maricopa County jail in downtown Phoenix was scheduled for Saturday.
So the evil law stripped down of most of it's teeth goes into effect. This on the day after Romney appeared before a Latin american forum to argue for their votes. He has stated that he will make this law the model for the entire nation, if he is elected, and President Obama is going to that same forum tonight.
I am sure Governor Bonefinger is going to help the president's bid tonight, to further garner more votes from that community.
