Effort to put Arizona immigration law on ballot fails

They couldn’t get enough signatures because the law is popular in Arizona. From the Arizona Republic.

An initiative drive to put Arizona’s new immigration law on the November ballot fizzled.

Thursday was the deadline to file the required nearly 154,000 voter signatures, but the Secretary of State’s office says the day passed without a filing.

The organizers of the “Compassion for all” campaign said in an Internet posting that they didn’t collect enough signatures and had closed out the campaign. They said they’d remain active in other activities to help the Hispanic community.

The proposed ballot measure would have repealed the law taking effect July 29 and imposed a three-year moratorium to bar the Legislature from enacting similar legislation.
