SB 1070 backlash spurs Hispanics to join Democrats (Daniel González, Jun. 8, 2010, The Arizona Republic)

In the seven weeks since Republican Gov. Jan Brewer signed Arizona's tough new immigration law, there has been a sharp increase in the number of Latinos registering to vote as Democrats, party officials say, jumping from about 100 a week before to 500 now.

Many of those registering are young Latino citizens whose parents may be undocumented.

"Before, it used to be hard," said Luis Heredia, executive director of the Arizona Democratic Party. "Now, they are just saying, 'Can you give me a form?' or, 'I am already registered, but I know someone who isn't.' "
