Former Gov. Pete Wilson, Now Romney Advisor – Mitt Romney continues to roll out anti immigrant surrogates in states with heavily immigrant populations. The latest is controversial former California Gov. Pete Wilson. “Weeks after GOP frontrunner Mitt Romney touted the controversial endorsement of the architect of some of the strictest state immigration laws in the country, the presidential candidate has named a well-known immigration hard-liner as honorary chairman of his California campaign. Romney announced on his campaign website Monday that he had named former California Gov. Pete Wilson as a chair of his California campaign.  In the announcement, Romney also touted the endorsement of his candidacy by Wilson, whose aggressive moves as governor to crack down on undocumented immigrants in the mid-1990s sparked heated debates at the time across the nation.

Supreme Court to hear Arizona immigration case April 25 After months of anticipation, The Supreme Court has announced that it will hear arguments on Arizona’s anti-immigrant legislation SB-1070. “The U.S. Supreme Court on Friday set an April 25 date for oral arguments on Arizona’s immigration law, Senate Bill 1070. The high court announced in December that it would hear the case, but did not set a date. The U.S. Department of Justice challenged the law before it went into effect in 2010, and a U.S. District Court judge in Phoenix imposed an injunction preventing several portions of the law from going into effect.”

Arizona sheriff embraces commercial ties with Mexico to split the cost of immigrant detention Along the Southwest Border in Arizona, Santa Cruz County Sheriff Tony Estrada comes up with a unique way of dealing with problems associated with detention of immigrants attempting to enter the country through the Nogales corridor.”As the country nears the end of a Republican primary that saw candidates scrambling for the endorsement of an Arizona sheriff known for his controversial jail, another sheriff at the entryway to the nation’s busiest corridor for human and drug trafficking has gone largely ignored. A year ago, Santa Cruz County Sheriff Tony Estrada opened up a jail of his own. It even has his name on it.  The Tony Estrada Law Enforcement Center is a $45 million dollar facility that now sits atop a hill overlooking the heart of Nogales, Ariz. — just four miles from the U.S.-Mexico border. Voters took a chance on the project in 2005, after Estrada — who has been the sheriff in the county for 19 years — pitched it as a way to deal with the financial woes brought upon by the county’s location.”
