U.S.'s Toughest Immigration Law Is Signed in Arizona

Breaking: U.S.'s Toughest Immigration Law Is Signed in Arizona 23 Apr 2010 Gov. Jan Brewer (R) of Arizona signed the toughest illegal immigration law in the country on Friday, aimed at identifying, prosecuting and deporting illegal immigrants. The law, which opponents and critics alike said was the broadest and strictest immigration measure in the country in generations, would make the failure to carry immigration documents a crime. It would also give the police broad power to detain anyone suspected of being in the country illegally.
