    Three year old law in Virginia targets illegal immigrants much like Arizona's SB 1070 - KOLD News 13

    And don't forget Califoirnia:

    834. An arrest is taking a person into custody, in a case and in
    the manner authorized by law. An arrest may be made by a peace
    officer or by a private person.



    834a. If a person has knowledge, or by the exercise of reasonable
    care, should have knowledge, that he is being arrested by a peace
    officer, it is the duty of such person to refrain from using force or
    any weapon to resist such arrest.


    834b. (a) Every law enforcement agency in California shall fully
    cooperate with the United States Immigration and Naturalization
    Service regarding any person who is arrested if he or she is
    suspected of being present in the United States in violation of
    federal immigration laws.
    (b) With respect to any such person who is arrested, and suspected
    of being present in the United States in violation of federal
    immigration laws, every law enforcement agency shall do the
    following:
    (1) Attempt to verify the legal status of such person as a citizen
    of the United States, an alien lawfully admitted as a permanent
    resident, an alien lawfully admitted for a temporary period of time
    or as an alien who is present in the United States in violation of
    immigration laws. The verification process may include, but shall
    not be limited to, questioning the person regarding his or her date
    and place of birth, and entry into the United States, and demanding
    documentation to indicate his or her legal status.
    (2) Notify the person of his or her apparent status as an alien
    who is present in the United States in violation of federal
    immigration laws and inform him or her that, apart from any criminal
    justice proceedings, he or she must either obtain legal status or
    leave the United States.
    (3) Notify the Attorney General of California and the United
    States Immigration and Naturalization Service of the apparent illegal
    status and provide any additional information that may be requested
    by any other public entity.
    (c) Any legislative, administrative, or other action by a city,
    county, or other legally authorized local governmental entity with
    jurisdictional boundaries, or by a law enforcement agency, to prevent
    or limit the cooperation required by subdivision (a) is expressly
    prohibited.

    CHAPTER 5. ARREST, BY WHOM AND HOW MADE - Sections 833-851.90 - California Penal Code - California Code :: Justia


    It has worked so well in these states, hasn't it?

    Many other States will also pass laws that let their police forces enforce Federal law. That should take some heat off AZ.

    Yes, this law exists. However, it still has not teeth. The police in PWC still rely on ICE. When ICE doesn not respond, or come to pick up the illegals in time (I forget the amount of time they can hold them), PWC must turn them loose, unless they are holding them for another crime.
