Arizona is attracting millions in out-of-state donations to defend its tough immigration law. Far-flung immigrant rights groups, too, are helping to make the state a test bed for the reform fight.
Many contributions made online or sent by mail are $20, $50, or $100 – for a total of $3.6 million. As long as donations keep coming, state taxpayers are off the hook as Gov. Jan Brewer defends the Arizona immigration law.
