Kavanagh Unhappy With Policy Change By Phoenix Police Department
Republican State Sen. John Kavanagh, who represents parts of Scottsdale and Fountain Hills, is unhappy with a policy change by the Phoenix Police Department.
Adopted in July, it would limit when officers can ask about a person’s immigration status.
Checking someone’s immigration status during a stop was one rare part of Arizona’s SB 1070 immigration enforcement law that was upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court.
Kavanagh is with us for a few minutes to explain his opposition to the Phoenix policy.
