Border States Shun Arizona's Immigration Law

Arizona's sweeping new immigration law is finding little support in the other states along the Mexican border.

New Mexico's governor says it's a step backward.

Texas isn't touching it. And California? never again.

Among the reasons given: California, New Mexico and Texas have long-established, politically powerful Hispanic communities.

They have deeper cultural ties to Mexico that influence their attitudes toward immigrants.

And they have little appetite for a polarizing battle over immigration like one that played out in California in the 1990s.
