Well, the real incentive for Brewer is getting re-elected, not necessarily pandering to the private prison lobby. It can’t hurt I suppose, but SB1070 still remains popular in Arizona. This bill is a political symptom of populism and ignorance triggered by Arizona’s particularly bad economic situation. SB1070 is not unique or surprising, but another predictable return of politicians appealing to fear during bad times.
