Arizona modified that law already

The state government of Arizona quickly modified its law about illegal aliens, reports the L.A. Times (click on this post's title):

"Lawmakers on Thursday night changed the language to require scrutiny only of people who police stop, detain or arrest.

"They also changed a section of the bill that barred officers from 'solely' using race as grounds for suspecting someone is in the country illegally; opponents had argued that that would allow race to be a factor. The legislators removed the word 'solely' to bar race from being used by officers enforcing the law."

Opponents of the law say these changes are "cosmetic" and not enough.
