Troy Hebert calls it a preventative measure
BATON ROUGE (WGMB)-State Senator Troy Hebert wants Louisiana to support Arizona's controversial immigration law.
Hebert is calling on Attorney General Buddy Caldwell to file a friend of the court motion with Arizona.
It's paperwork that would show Louisiana's support for Arizona's new law that targets illegal immigrants.
Hebert is also working on similar legislation for Louisiana.
He says the move will help prevent illegal immigration from being a bigger problem in the state.
Caldwell's office says it will make that decision soon.
