Even liberal AZ Republic comes out against deceptive Prop. 202 which would gut employer sanctions

Although it's been dishonestly named "Stop Illegal Hiring," and is funded by wealthy business interests - who are more interested in continuing to hire illegal immigrants, it may not pass now that even the liberal Arizona Republic has denounced it:
It goes too far. It would raise the bar for filing a complaint, ruling out anonymous tips. It would set much higher standards for proving that an employer knowingly hired illegal immigrants. Opponents argue persuasively it would be virtually impossible for any employer to be prosecuted under the law. Meanwhile, employers wouldn't have to use E-Verify to check the status of new hires, but could choose a toothless alternative.
