Arizona SB 1070 is the most vicious anti-immigrant law passed in U.S. history.  It requires detention of any person suspected of being an undocumented while giving citizen groups standing to sue for failure to enforce.  Meanwhile, a person driving his friend to church could be charged with transporting and employers are subject to severe penalties for hiring undocumented workers.
