ABSTRACT
Although the seeds of legislated restrictions for immigrants can be traced to 1994 with California's unsuccessful Prop 187, more recent trends epitomized by Arizona's Senate Bill 1070 signed into law in April 2010 have renewed concerns about the impact of such policies on the life and livelihood of immigrant communities. We argue that in Arizona, emerging anti-immigrant policies that by design single out undocumented immigrants for exclusion grossly neglect important historical and geographical factors that have resulted in the prevalence of mixed immigration status households: domestic units in which the immigration status of at least one member is different from the others. As such, this feature of social organization will make the implementation of such policies untenable.
