Latino group announces support for Senate Bill 1070

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX -- While Senate Bill 1070 has stirred up controversy throughout the country, polls show that the majority of Americans -- and Arizonans -- support the new anti-illegal-immigration law.

The Arizona Latino Republican Association is among the groups to come out in support of the law.

The group held a press conference Thursday morning, even as supporters and opponents of SB 1070 gathered outside the U.S. District Court in Phoenix before a hearing to determine if the law should take effect next week as planned.
