Arizona passed a tough anti-illegal immigration law last year, but it now appears to be softening its stance. The state Senate killed five bills related to illegal immigration on Thursday. Some of the measures proposed that hospitals and schools should report patients and students who are illegal immigrants, a move that critics say is overreaching. "It's time for us to take a timeout," said state Sen. John McComish. "It's something that the people don't want us to be focusing on," he added.
