PHOENIX (AP) - The conflict over a sweeping crackdown on illegal immigration in Arizona intensified Monday as vandals smeared refried beans in the shape of swastikas on the state Capitol's windows.
More protests were planned Monday after thousands gathered this weekend to demonstrate against a bill that will make it a state crime to be an illegal immigrant in Arizona.
Opponents say the law will lead to rampant racial profiling and turn Arizona into a police state with provisions that require police to question people about their immigrant status if they suspect they are here illegally. Day laborers can be arrested for soliciting work if they are in the U.S. illegally, and police departments can be sued if they don't carry out the law.
But supporters of the law, set to take effect in late July or August, say it is necessary to protect Arizonans from a litany of crimes committed by illegal immigrants. Arizona is home to an estimated 460,000 illegal immigrants.
Gov. Jan Brewer, who signed the bill on Friday, argues Arizona must act because the federal government has failed to stop the steady stream of illegal immigrants and drugs that move through Arizona from Mexico. She is scheduled to speak about the issue Monday at a Tucson hotel.
The law has revved up the national debate, drawing the attention of the Obama administration and Congress. Obama has called the new law "misguided" and instructed the Justice Department to examine it to see if it's legal.
Refried Bean Swastikas Smeared On Arizona Capitol


That is just plain sickening and sad.

I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that it's not a supporter of the new law that did it...

Really, as opposed to the people that are already comparing the law to Nazism?

Who else would put swastikas on public buildings? People who want to send a message. Who sends this message of hate? Neo Nazi's and the like.

You must have a sloppy short-term memory. I'll remind you of what you said earlier:

So I'll ask again; where did you hear that it was Neo Nazi's[sic]?

I saw it on CNN

BLITZER: One final question. Those refried beans in the shape of a swastika at the state capital in Phoenix today, I don't know if you saw the pictures, but it was pretty horrendous.

What was behind that?

GORDON: You know, first of all, the police don't know who put it on. There's allegations on both sides that each other's side did it. We have anarchists here now coming in and we also have extreme militia and hate groups, neo-Nazi groups coming in to try to ferment dis -- to, you know, violence and breaking the peace. And I know that I've been, on my own house, picketed by neo-Nazi signs and stuff.
