Wyoming Man Donates To Defend Arizona Immigration

Phoenix, AZ – A Wyoming man has given more than $1.5 million dollars to help defend Arizona's controversial immigration enforcement measure in court.

The donation from Timothy Mellon of Saratoga brings the total in donations to Governor Jan Brewer's legal defense fund to $3.6 million.

Civil rights groups and the U.S. Justice Department have sued to block Arizona's immigration law.

The latest legal bills released Thursday show Brewer's office has spent more than $440-thousand for the first two months of defending the law.
