‘Qué Pasa’ in Immigration: Will Obama Stop AZ?; New Life for CIR; 1070’s Architects Exposed

Share This:

Arizona’s law criminalizing undocumented immigrants is still the biggest story in Spanish-language news, with media outlets covering statements from Obama Administration officials, a few silver linings among the effects of the law, and the anti-immigrant organizations that helped put it together.

Will Obama stop AZ? EFE picks up a quote from Attorney General Eric Holder saying that the law could result in racial discrimination, and various Mexican media outlets (including Excelsior, La Crónica and Once) cover comments from United States Ambassador to Mexico Carols Pascual indicating that Washington will take action against the law. La Tribuna Hispana (Long Island), La Raza (Chicago), and El Diario (El Paso) run columns referring to the injustice of the Arizona law.
