Today’s top story throughout the Spanish-language press is the passage of SB 1070, which would criminalize undocumented immigrants, by the Arizona State Senate — with the support of Senator John McCain (R-AZ).
AZ Senate passes criminalization bill. The bill will now become law if signed by Governor Jan Brewer. EFE, the AP, Starmedia, Univision.com, La Jornada and El Mensajero (San Francisco) have more on the story. La Opinión (Los Angeles) publishes a column, “Where’s the bill?”, by Rafael Prieto of America’s Voice, discussing the Arizona legislation and Washington’s inaction on immigration reform.
