Since its enactment last month, the Arizona law that gives local and state police the ability to arrest and detain people they suspect to be undocumented immigrants has spurred a whirlwind of discussion and activism concerning immigration policy and race relations. This article presents an interview with three Mexican-American academics about the law, its impact on Arizona colleges and universities, and what they hope to see in real immigration reform moving forward. Dr. Roberto Rodriguez is an assistant professor in the Department of Mexican American and Raza Studies at the University of Arizona. In his nationally syndicated "Column of the Americas," he compared Arizona to the apartheid South Africa. Dr. Josephine Mendez-Negrete, an associate professor of bicultural-bilingual studies at University of Texas at San Antonio, is the editor of the journal, Chicana/Latina Studies. Dr. Devon Pena, the chair of NACCS and author of its statement against SB 1070, is a professor of anthropology and Chicano studies at the University of Washington.
