The top story in the Spanish-language press is yesterday’s meeting between several police chiefs of U.S. cities and Attorney General Eric Holder regarding Arizona SB 1070. President Obama’s decision to send National Guard troops to the border also continues to receive significant coverage.
Cops say no to 1070. The police chiefs warned the Attorney General, who is considering a legal challenge to the Arizona law, and the press that SB 1070 and similar laws would increase crime. A La Opinión (Los Angeles) editorial backs the chiefs. El Diario-La Prensa (New York), Reuters, El Porvenir, Univision.com, the AP, Yahoo News and La Opinión have more on the story.
