It's one of the most controversial topics for this year's Republican presidential hopefuls: How should America be handling illegal immigration? Bachmann, Romney, Perry, and Cain have all weighed in on the issue. In the meantime, the Obama administration set new records last year for detaining and deporting illegal immigrants. And this year, the government plans to top their record by removing 400,000 more. A new episode of "Frontline," called "Lost in Detention," investigates what detaining and deporting involves, for individuals, law enforcement, and communities. The episode airs on PBS stations tonight.

The Arizona immigration law, which goes into effect today, is shining a light on police interactions with immigrant populations around the country. Maria Hinojosa, host of Latino USA, and John Annese, reporter for the Staten Island Advance, discuss how the NYPD is surging into Staten Island after a wave of attacks on Mexicans.

Yesterday, just one day before Arizona's controversial immigration law was to go into effect, a federal judge put a last-minute hold on some of the most controversial parts of the law, including the requirement for immigrants to carry papers at all times, and the directive for officers to check the immigration status of people they detain for other reasons.
For civil rights groups who oppose the law, it's a last-minute reprieve. For law enforcement agencies who supported it, it's a disappointing setback. It's been a long three months for supporters and opponents alike since Arizona Governor Jan Brewer signed S.B. 1070 into law on April 23rd.

A new demographic study from the University of New Hampshire finds that the demographic makeup of the U.S. is changing most rapidly among babies and young children, with 2010 on track to see more babies of color born than white babies. The study cites immigration, high fertility rates among recent immigrant communities (and comparatively lower fertility rates among non-Hispanic whites) and details the counties that have already become so-called "majority-minority" areas.
