Tucson-area law enforcement officials added to the pile of briefs filed with the Supreme Court this week opposing Arizona's SB 1070 illegal immigration law.

Tucson Police Chief Roberto Villaseñor and Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik joined ex-state Attorneys General Grant Woods and Terry Goddard, along with U.S. Rep. Raul Grijalva and dozens of others in asking the court to strike down the law.

Among those filing briefs:

Thursday, Gov. Jan Brewer blasted the brief filed by California and the other states, saying it "contains more misstatements and misrepresentations than I care to respond to."

"I look forward to SB 1070 being heard by the U.S. Supreme Court in April so that states like mine may finally receive guidance on this critical issue," she said in a press release.
