Ariz. cops need immigration training

There's another wrinkle in the story about Arizona's new immigration law: Police there need training so they can enforce immigration rules correctly, and they're asking the federal government for help. The president has already asked the Justice Department to review the law and see if it violates any civil-rights standards -- so that help might not be forthcoming. State officials say they need the extra assistance, partly because ICE has more expertise, but also because Arizona only has 90 days to train all of its LEOs.
