Update on Arizona legislation: at a recent press event, Gov. Napolitano (D) said that she would move on the present "illegal immigration" bill (HB 2779), which penalizes the employers of "illegal immigrants," on her desk by Monday. She said she vetoed last year’s employer sanctions bill because it was an “amnesty” for the employers of “illegal aliens.” Also said she was a long-standing friend of “enforcement” measures. So is she setting herself up for cover if she vetoes the bill--she believes in "enforcement," just not this enforcement--or is she hinting that she would sign the bill? This event took place before the vote on cloture earlier today--and she said she was keeping her eye on what happened in the Senate, too.
