    PHOENIX -- Erika Andiola's mother was pulled over by Mesa Police Saturday night for speeding but Andiola believes there was another reason, a reason police said is irrelevant. "According to the police she was going 50 miles per hour when it was supposed to be 40," Andiola told 92.3 KTAR's Jay Lawrence. "I actually went to speak to one of the cops and he didn't even want to answer whether he stopped them or not because of the color of their skin but I honestly felt that was the reason why that happened." Andiola added that her mother and two...

    A hot button issue in the upcoming elections and one of the most contentious topics in the Republican Party is also the subject of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush. Bush has started work on a book about immigration and landed a deal with Threshold Editions, a conservative imprint of Simon & Schuster, for "Immigration Wars: Forging An American Solution." Threshold announced Wednesday that the book is scheduled for next spring and will be co-authored by conservative attorney and activist Clint Bolick. Financial terms were not disclosed. "Drawing upon history and American ideals, Jeb Bush and Clint Bolick outline a courageous...

    Writer Catherine Poe is correct in saying GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney used fighting words when he recently called DREAMers “illegal aliens” (DREAM Act: Mitt Romney still calls DREAMers ‘illegal aliens’ at Univision’s Latino Forum,” Web, Thursday). More importantly, Mr. Romney’s words are dangerous and illustrate how out of touch he is with the immigrant community. How can someone claim to advocate for a “permanent solution” to fix our broken immigration system when he dehumanizes immigrants within the same breath? Mr. Romney must drop the I-word. Why? The I-word, short for “illegal alien,” “illegal immigrant” and like harmful terms, is...

    As national media debate whether women can “have it all”—a successful career and a family—one group of women has chosen to provide for their families at all costs, even if it means leaving their kids behind. They are the undocumented immigrants who work as nannies in the United States and who, in exchange for work, have paid a high emotional cost: living apart from their own children. Many working mothers may be familiar with feelings of guilt. But little is known about the drama faced by undocumented nannies in this country—mothers who love and care for other people’s children, while...

    September 19, 2012 Arizona Immigration Law Spurs Education Campaign PHOENIX — An education campaign for illegal immigrants to remain largely silent when they're pulled over by police is being put into practice in Arizona after a federal judge ruled that the most contentious part of the state's immigration law can take effect. Natally Cruz and Leticia Ramirez have been telling immigrants who are in the United States illegally, like themselves, that they should offer only their name and date of birth — and carry no documents that show where they were born. U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton ruled Tuesday that...

    Federal judge William Haynes signed an order on Thursday recommending the approval of a special type of visa for Juana Villegas. Villegas, an undocumented immigrant, sparked controversy after she was arrested and shackled to a hospital bed in the final stages of pregnancy in 2009. Haynes recommended that Villegas be approved for a U Visa — a temporary visa given to immigrants who are the victims of crimes. However, Haynes didn't accuse the Davidson County Sheriff's Office, whom allegedly denied Villegas the use of a breast pump, of committing crimes. Rather, he ruled that Villegas had “met her minimum burden...

    Maine Republican Sen. Susan Collins again took a step outside of her party's box Wednesday on the issue of gay rights when she became the first Republican in the Senate to co-sponsor legislation that she says would give same-sex couples immigration rights equal to those of heterosexual couples. Collins, who's bucked her party before on gay rights issues, joined a long list of Democratic sponsors of the Uniting American Families Act. The bill would give same-sex couples the chance to sponsor their significant other for citizenship. "This legislation would simply update our nation's immigration laws to treat bi-national couples equally,"...

    House Democrats defeated the broadest immigration reform effort yet in this Congress, voting down a bill on Thursday that would have ended the random visa lottery and replaced it with a system rewarding high-tech foreign graduates from U.S. universities. The vote showed neither side is ready to break the stalemate that has foiled every major immigration bill for the past decade. This latest effort would have tried to rewrite the country’s immigration priorities, shifting away from random chance and toward picking skilled workers that Republicans said could boost the U.S. economy. “Unfortunately, Democrats today voted to send the best and...

    PHOENIX (Reuters) - Arizona police on Wednesday began enforcing a controversial "show-your-papers" provision of a state law targeting illegal immigration as civil rights groups prepared to document allegations of racial profiling. Police in the border state with Mexico are now authorized to begin conducting immigration status checks of anyone they stop for any reason and suspect of being in the country illegally after a federal judge on Tuesday lifted an injunction against the provision requiring such checks. The measure, upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court in June, is part of a broad Arizona clampdown on illegal immigration signed into law...

    It was learned late Tuesday night that Cochise County Sheriff Larry Dever has died in a single vehicle rollover accident in Coconino County. Details of what occurred are sketchy as of this hour, but the news was confirmed by Cochise County Supervisor Pat Call at about 11 p.m. Dever was running unopposed in this fall’s election for what would have been his fifth term as sheriff. It is unclear at this time what his sudden passing will mean in the electoral process. The sheriff was more than a local law enforcement official as he took the lead on the national...

    Unemployment is still above 8 percent, job gains aren't even keeping up with population growth, the economy is barely moving forward. And yet, according to most polls, the Romney-Ryan ticket is falling further and further behind. How can this be? Because Republicans are failing the central test of electability. Instead of putting together the largest possible coalition of voters, they're relying largely on one slice of America -- middle-aged white men -- and alienating just about everyone else. Start with Hispanics, whose electoral heft keeps growing as they become an ever-larger portion of the electorate. Hispanics now favor President Obama...
