Phoenix Police Begin To Ask

Phoenix, the fifth largest city in the U.S., recently directed its police to start asking about immigrant status of those whom they arrest. Not everyone who comes in contact with the police will be asked about status -- those stopped for a routine traffic violation, a victim, a witness. Still the new regulation is a break with the pattern of large cities not to mix immigration enforcement with law enforcement. (See NY Times article.)
