The copycats are back

An editorial in Rutherford County's Daily News Journal questions whether Tennessee should copy Arizona's approach to immigration, without crunching the numbers ourselves.

I asked a similar question at the Scene blog a few weeks ago: Are Tennessee's legislators lining up local experts to draft and subsequently testify about the legislation, or are they just taking instructions from Arizona?

It's hard to say you have a high regard for Tennessee and its citizens if you keep them out of the deliberative process and let other states write laws for you.
