P1 First Person: Arizona’s immigration law

By Officer Dan Simmons
Southern Arizona

I am a native Arizonan, born and raised here, and other than a 20-plus year career in the Marine Corps, I have lived here all my life. For the last 18-plus years I have been a police officer in Southern Arizona. My brother lives about 12 miles from the Mexican border in Cochise County and I have spent a lot of time at and around his place enjoying the countryside and the rural lifestyle. I have firsthand experience with what is going on in Southern Arizona related to the immigration issues — I say “issues” because it is many sub-issues all rolled into one big issue.
