WASHINGTON (AP) D.C. Council member Michael A. Brown has introduced a resolution to oppose Arizona's new law cracking down on illegal immigrants. Brown and Council Chairman Vincent C. Gray co-introduced the bill on Tuesday and the other 11 council members joined them.

The resolution urges the D.C. government and the D.C. Retirement Board to divest in state and municipal bonds issued by Arizona. It also calls for blocking city funds from being used to support participation at any conference or event held in Arizona.

The Arizona law requires police to question people about their immigration status if there's reason to suspect they're in the country illegally. It also makes it a state crime to be in the United States illegally.

Brown say it encourages racial profiling.
