David Harris in ColorLines Magazine on the Arizona Immigration Law

In ColorLines magazine, Professor David Harris explains the failure of Arizona’s new immigration law to reckon with the destructive effects the statute will have on public safety and community policing. Noting that the overwhelming consensus in law enforcement nationwide is against local police taking on the job of immigration policing, Harris says that “[w]hatever else you want to say about illegal immigration, responsible public officials should take what law enforcement is telling them and make that the basis for more responsible and tempered immigration action.”
