Left Behind: How SB 1070 Affected Arizona's Children
Left Behind: How SB 1070 Affected Arizona's Children

AIR DATE: October 13, 2011

When Arizona's SB 1070 was passed to crack down on illegal immigration, some immigrants fled the state.  But SB 1070 also affected their children.  A recent study showed more high school students were living without their parents.  After SB 1070 passed, they were living alone, or with friends and relatives.  How else did SB 1070 change the lives of Arizona's youth?  And how did it affect them emotionally?  Why were so many afraid to talk to the study's researchers?  Also, what other changes should we expect to see with anti-migrant laws spreading to other states?
