Opponents to Arizona's landmark immigration law are calling on lawmakers to repeal it three years after it was signed into law.
The tough anti-illegal immigration measure was signed into law on April 23, 2010 after years of complaints that the federal government hadn't done enough to address the state's role as the nation's busiest illegal entry point.
Democratic state Sen. Steve Gallardo says the bill should be repealed. Gallardo has tried for years to get the Republican-led Legislature to overturn the law to no avail.
But Republican Rep. John Kavanagh says Arizona's "self-deportation" style measure is still crucial to fighting illegal immigration.
President Barack Obama and Republicans and Democrats in Congress are lobbying for the nation's first immigration overhaul in nearly three decades.
