Rep. John Kavanagh, R- Fountain Hills.

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.
