Romley promises plan to confront immigration

Maricopa County Attorney Rick Romley is developing a new plan for confronting illegal immigration and plans to release details of his approach in the coming weeks.

No details of the plan have yet been released.

Romley’s office says he is working with police agencies and other prosecutors to develop the plan.

Romley’s predecessor, Andrew Thomas, was known for his immigration efforts, such as the enforcement of the state’s smuggling law.

A new state law that has sparked a national debate about illegal immigration requires police to question people about their immigration status if there is reason to suspect they’re in the country illegally. It’s set to take effect in late July.
