In the run-up to the U.S. Supreme Court hearing on Arizona's immigration law, two Florida Democrats are weighing in.
Reps. Ted Deutch, D-Boca Raton, and Frederica Wilson, D-Miami, signed an amicus brief with 65 other members of Congress -- all Democrats -- to support the Justice Department's opposition to the law.
They joined 11 state attorneys general -- also all Democrats -- in contending that Arizona's SB 1070 will "have the primary effect of redirecting undocumented immigrants to other states."
Arizona officials, led by Gov. Jan Brewer, argue that federal inaction leaves Arizona with no choice but to take immigration enforcement into its own hands.
The Supreme Court will hear Arizona v. The United States on April 25.
