Photos of the Week



In this April 22, 2010 file photo, a Customs and Border Patrol agent patrols along the international border in Nogales, Ariz. As the days tick down until the Arizona immigration law takes effect, the state stands as a monument to the anger over illegal immigration that is present in so many places. The anger has been simmering for years, and erupted into a full-blown fury with the murder of a prominent rancher on the border earlier this year. The killing became a powerful rallying cry for immigration reform, but it does not tell the whole story about how Arizona got to this point. (AP Photo/Matt York, File)


 



A group of illegal immigrants listen to a Border Patrol agent while being deported to Mexico at the Nogales Port of Entry in Nogales, Ariz., Wednesday, July 28, 2010. A federal judge on Wednesday blocked the most controversial parts of Arizona's immigration law from taking effect, delivering a last-minute victory to opponents of the crackdown. The overall law  took effect Thursday, but without the provisions that angered opponents, including sections that required officers to check a person's immigration status while enforcing other laws.

The non-profit Samaritans provides medical, food and water and clothing assistance to undocumented immigrants on both sides of the border. Many deported immigrants say they will again try to enter the United States illegally, most looking for work to support their families. (Photo by John Moore/Getty Images)


 



A coalition of immigrant groups and their supporters march across the Brooklyn Bridge in New York July 29, 2010 calling for a permanent repeal of Arizona's controversial immigration law, which took effect Thursday. Demonstrators also gathered in Phoenix Thursday to protest a new Arizona immigration law, which went into effect despite being stripped of powers allowing police to spot check the legal status of suspects.

Anti-SB1070 protesters are arrested after staging a sit-in and blocking 1st Avenue in downtown Phoenix on July 29, 2010. Protestors and police in riot gear clashed in several downtown locations with demonstrations against a new Arizona immigration law just hours after it went into effect. Demonstrators angrily denounced the law, even though a judge has temporarily stripped it of key powers allowing police to spot check the immigration status of all suspects. Civil rights groups were urging state schools, town and city governments and local police departments not to comply with the law, and began a march from a church to the courthouse and the offices of tough county sheriff Joe Arpaio.
