We’re following breaking news out of Louisiana, where crude oil from that massive spill is now coming ashore. We’ll have the latest on its spread and what’s being done to contain the damage.

We’ll also look at some burning questions for the owner of the ruptured well and the government. Did oil company BP fail to take the steps it should have to prevent this catastrophe? Did regulators fail to enforce safety provisions leading up to the rupture? Did they fail to act fast enough after the rig blew? We’re keeping them honest.

Also tonight, Dr. Sanjay Gupta looks at the potential health impact of the oil spill. What will happen to all that seafood and everyone who eats it?

Arizona’s new immigration law is sparking a big backlash. Protests are planned in at least 21 states tomorrow. In the face of accusations of racial profiling, Arizona’s legislature made late changes last night to the law’s language. Will that be enough to change critics’ minds? In tonight’s Big 360 Interview, we’ll hear from a veteran police officer who is suing to block the law, which he calls unconstitutional.

Plus, four impressive women who are using their professional skills and connections to wage war against breast cancer. Newswomen Cokie Roberts, Deborah Charles, Jennifer Griffin and Jill Dougherty talk with 360 M.D. Sanjay Gupta about their personal battles with the disease and their latest call to action.

See you at 10 p.m. eastern!
