ABC on Wednesday continued to attack Arizona's tough new immigration law. Good Morning America devoted three segments to the subject, even misstating what the legislation does.
News anchor Juju Chang incorrectly asserted, "The law would allow police to question anyone suspected of being in the country illegally."
In fact, the law would allow police to check immigration status only if an individual has already been stopped  for a legitimate police reason. An on-screen graphic derided, "Target: Immigrants: Arizona Law Set to Take Effect." Notice that, according to ABC, Arizona is simply focusing on immigrants, not illegal immigrants.
