Jan Brewer issues executive order for SB 1070-related law enforcement training
Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer issued an executive order Tuesday for all law enforcement personnel to be retrained in the standards necessary to enforce SB 1070, a controversial immigration bill.
"The training is going to address things like what the various forms of identification are that constitute legal status, that prove legal status for somebody who gets stopped by a law officer," said Brewer's spokesman, Matthew Benson. "It's also going to make clear that an individual's race, color or national origin alone is not ground for reasonable suspicion that they're in the country illegally."
The training will be issued through DVDs.
The Supreme Court is expected to decide on the fate of the law sometime during the summer.
