A sampling of news stories and commentary related to illegal immigrants and illegal immigration:

  • A seventh lawsuit against Arizona’s new anti-illegal immigration law, SB-1070, was filed on Friday.  This one objects to the training materials police are using.  
  • Four illegal immigrants were busted for fraud at the U.S. border.  Two had criminal histories dealing with either human smuggling or “dangerous drugs.” A third had numerous immigration violations.
  • Some Tucson businesses are showing their opposition to SB-1070 by placing “We Mean Business” signs in their storefronts.  Given that a majority of Arizonans are for SB-1070, these businesses might have a lot less business in the future.
  • Border Patrol agents found 744 pounds of marijuana abandoned in the southern Arizona desert while investigating reports of illegal immigrants.
  • An illegal immigrant was arrested on murder charges while trying to enter the U.S.  The man also had previous arrests for assault, gang activity and criminal firearms possession.
