AZ Illustrated Politics: Kozachik Condemns SB 1070

Posted By on Mon, Oct 28, 2013 at 12:00 PM

On last Friday's AZ Illustrated Politics, Tucson City Councilman called for the repeal of SB 1070 because it was creating problems between Tucson police officers and the Latino community. He said that the Tucson City Council may take some steps to create a new policy limiting how long Tucson cops will detain people they suspect are in the country illegally while waiting for the Border Patrol.

Kozachik also talked about the Broadway widening project between downtown and Country Club Road, as well his recent efforts to draw attention to the links between gun violence and domestic violence and the upcoming Loft Film Festival.

On the AZ Illustrated Politics roundtable, Pima County Democratic Party Chairman Don Jorgensen and Tucson Hispanic Chamber of Commerce President Lea Marquez-Peterson discussed the hurdles in the way of comprehensive immigration reform, Attorney General Tom Horne's political problems and the upcoming Tucson City Council election.
