Pasadena condemns Arizona immigration law

Pasadena, Calif., has passed a resolution condemning Arizona’s tough new anti-illegal immigration law.
Los Angeles, San Diego and San Francisco are among several cities to wage Arizona boycotts, but Pasadena decided to take a more moderate approach.
The City Council on Monday voted 5-2 to OK the resolution, and in a separate motion by Councilman Chris Holden the council called on Congress to immediately take up comprehensive immigration reform.
Arizona’s new law would mandate police ask for citizenship documents from those suspected of committing a crime, as long as officers had reasonable cause to believe the suspect was in the country illegally.
