Abstract

When Arizona Governor Jan Brewer signed the legislation commonly referred to as Senate Bill 1070 into law, she sparked a firestorm of controversy in the local and national media. Commentators and activists on both sides of the immigration debate fanned the flames of that controversy by giving starkly different accounts of what the legislation contained and what its effects were likely to be. This short commentary identifies a number of examples where the public discussion of S.B. 1070 is incomplete or inaccurate.

Keywords: Immigration, S.B. 1070, Arizona, Fact Check
