PHOENIX - Arizona state Senator Steve Gallardo introduced his new bill to repeal the state's controversial illegal immigration law SB 1070.
Sen. Gallardo says the law sanctions racial profiling and he says its economic effects on Arizona have been devastating.
Senate Bill 1070 made it a state misdemeanor for a person to be in Arizona without carrying the required documents.
The law authorizes police to demand papers proving citizenship or immigration status from anyone they stop and suspect of being in the country illegally.
