Paterson’s New Immigration Panel Targets Washington (Not Arizona)

The panel David Paterson convened to “review” deportation proceedings is being cast as a rebuttal to Arizona’s law allowing local police to check resident’s citizenship status.

But in a scrum with reporters, Paterson said the target isn’t Arizona–it’s Washington. Paterson said his new panel “may not affect very many people but” the “symbolism that we’re trying to address is that our national immigration laws are seriously in need of reform.”
