Arizona's Immigration Law

Idaho State Senator Mike Jorgenson is tickled to death about a new immigration law in Arizona. That law would compel local law enforcement officials to confront individuals whom they suspect of being illegal immigrants and demand proof of citizenship or immigration status. Jorgenson would like to see a similar law in Idaho.

Leo Morales, Immigration Policy Director for the Idaho Community Action Network, says Arizona's law sets a dangerous precedent. He calls for national immigration reform.

In this edition of Dialogue, Jorgenson and Morales face off over immigration policy and the role states have in this ostensible federal responsibility.
