El Paso - Naomi Gonzalez is fresh from an election victory two weeks ago.
Today she said Arizona's immigration law falls far short of its intentions...
"I think that it's unfortunate that Arizona has chosen to take this step and that the law is a clear violation of people's civil rights."
Gonzalez thinks a Texas immigration bill is bad policy, bad politics and best left to the feds...
"I think the border communities are going to come out strong, the delegations that come from those communities are going to have a strong voice in you know stating that immigration is a complex issue and it's one that needs to be addressed by the federal government. We can't have 50 different states addressing you know immigration laws their own way and so I don't think it has a very good chance."
