‘Qué Pasa’ in Immigration: SB 1070 Passed; Boycott Arizona; Window for CIR


The Spanish-language media focuses on the passage of Arizona state law SB 1070, which criminalizes undocumented immigrants, and its immediate effects: a boycott of Arizona businesses and renewed calls for comprehensive immigration reform.

SB 1070 passed. EFE reports that legal action is already being taken to prevent the law from being implemented, while La Crónica, EFE, Univision, and Yahoo News cover reactions to the law from the Catholic Church in Mexico and El Salvador and the Mexican government.
