Lawmaker urges California to cut Arizona ties over immigration law

California's state Senate leader on Tuesday urged a possible end to state contracts with Arizona to protest that state's new immigration law. Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg said Arizona's law is a "gross civil-rights violation" because it requires local police to demand proof of legal status if officers suspect a person might be an illegal immigrant.
