“Law­mak­ers in Ari­zona have sent the harsh­est anti-im­mi­grant mea­sure in the nation to their gover­nor. … The frus­tra­tion that fu­eled Cal­i­for­nia’s ugly and un­con­sti­tu­tional Propo­si­tion 187—an at­tempt to deny so­cial ser­vices, health­care and ed­u­ca­tion to il­le­gal im­mi­grants—has taken hold in Ari­zona, where Lati­nos now make up only about 15% of reg­is­tered vot­ers but ac­count for al­most half of all births and half of the K-12 pop­u­la­tion. … It’s hard to fault state law­mak­ers for try­ing to solve those prob­lems while lead­ers in Washington avoid them.”

— Chicago Tribune “Unions rep­re­sent­ing nurses launched a bois­ter­ous cam­paign to de­feat Repub­li­can gu­ber­na­to­rial can­di­date Meg Whitman on the same day last week that they helped kill a bill to po­lice the health­care pro­fes­sion. In both cases, the nurses’ ac­tiv­ity was more about union­ism than it was about qual­ity health­care. … De­spite their stated ded­i­ca­tion to their pa­tients, the nurses joined with den­tists and oth­ers to kill Se­nate Bill 1111 … which would have helped ... track nurses fired for malfea­sance, in­clud­ing pa­tient abuse.”
