The Arizona Jaime Cuervo “Papers Please” Law and Voter Suppression

West Hollywood, California (May 3, 2010) - Expect more than your usual dose of just a handful of two minute public comments supporting a consent calendar item at tonight’s City Council meeting when WeHo boycotts the Great State of Arizona in reaction to the “papers, please” law just signed by that state’s governor.

Summary
We’ll leave it to others to decide whether Arizona’s new immigration law is a good thing or a bad thing — but here we try to straighten out some of the confusing factual claims. First, a quick summary. Contrary to what the law’s defenders often say, the new statute does more than merely mirror federal law.
