Arizona police officer challenges migrant law
Tucson police officer Martin Escobar has worked to build relationships of trust in the working class Mexican-American neighborhood he patrols.
But after Arizona passed a state law in April cracking down on illegal immigrants, some residents stopped coming forward to report crimes like robberies and domestic violence, for fear of being arrested.
“Ask any officer … You would not believe how many incidents go unreported … even though the law has not gone into effect,” said Escobar, 45, who has worked as a police officer in the city for 15 years.
Do not forget that Kris Kobach, on the SPLC watch list, and noted by LGF, helped write this law.
