During the GOP Primaries, likely nominee Mitt Romney preached an immigration policy of "self-deportation". It just so happens that in the wake of the passage of SB 1070, Arizona's controversial immigration law, many of that state's undocumented immigrants are practicing self-deportation. But they're not necessarily going back to Mexico. Instead, many are crossing the border into surrounding states with more lenient immigration laws on the books. We're joined by Peter O'Dowd, News Director at KJZZ.
