There are several new developments surrounding Arizona's new immigration law.
A delegation from Arizona made up of church leaders and lawmakers went to Washington, D.C. to meet with a representative of the U.S. Justice Department's civil rights division. They'll be talking about the impact Arizona's immigration law will have on the Latino community.
All of this comes as the boycott against Arizona continues.
All of this coincides with the push by Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon to file a lawsuit on behalf of the city over the new immigration law. The city attorney says he doesn't have the power without the city council. FOX 10 talked with the mayor last week about the issue and he felt he did have the power and was going forward. The mayor can't get the support from the council as they can't afford to spend money on a lawsuit at a time when they're laying off city workers.
"..actually I'll be suing.. whether I'm suing individually ..whether I'm suing as a group, but I will be suing as the mayor to in order to get this law defined at the very least. I won't use the taxpayer dollars, but I will sue." Gordon said.
