SB 1070 author Sen. Russell Pearce (R-AZ) is largely responsible for the current anti-immigrant law in Arizona. His determination to target a specific population through legislation is not a new development, however. In 2002, Pearce worked to protect men accused of domestic violence from restraining orders, opposed stiffer penalties for men who assault pregnant women, and took strong stands against the safety of women in Arizona. These backward positions on domestic violence law reflect Pearce's own experience. According to police reports and court documents, Pearce broke down his first wife's door in front of witnesses and allegedly grabbed his second wife by the neck and threw her to the floor.
