On April 23, despite disapproval from the White House, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer signed SB 1070, a largely controversial immigration law, requiring police officers to detain people they suspect are in the country illegally, and makes it a misdemeanor crime to not carry immigration papers.
The law drew criticism from the Hispanic community, saying that this method encouraged racial profiling. Governor Brewer claimed the federal government had waited too long for immigration reform.
