Phoenix Public Safety Manager Jack Harris' supporters say his recent removal as police chief was politically motivated and directly related to his position on immigration-enforcement issues.
Mayor Phil Gordon told The Arizona Republic on Friday that he believes Harris' reassignment was "payback for his principled stand against SB 1070," a controversial law enacted last year that aimed to make being in the country illegally a state crime.

It sounds more like what can happen to anyone who refuses to do the job they are being paid to do. He doesn't believe in enforcing laws? Then why would he want to be in law enforcement?

It would be nice if the proposed law were infact deemed to be constitutional first, then and if...He refuses to enforce the law, he can be dismissed or reassigned.

As of yet, the contentious parts of the law are not in effect in Arizona...making your assesment moot and premature.

As well it should but I thought Phoenix was some kind of liberal oasis along with Tuscon in AZ. What happened?

It appears Gordon's political future is toast in AZ as well.
