The American Bar Association is facing mounting pressure to move a conference scheduled for next week in Phoenix. The event's co-sponsor has backed out and two New York public interest law groups have called for a boycott to protest Arizona's controversial new immigration law, which makes it illegal not to carry immigration documents and gives police authority to detain anyone on the basis of "reasonable suspicion" that a person is in the U.S. illegally. The ABA event focuses on legal services for low-income individuals.
