Ariz. Immigration Law Takes Effect: Join the Live Chat

[cnn-photo-caption image=http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2009/images/01/02/liveblogfinal.copy.jpg]

Arizona's new immigration laws went into effect today and sparked protests that are still going on tonight. We'll have all the angles. Plus, Congressman Charlie Rangel can't make a deal to avoid a potentially embarrassing public trial. He's facing 13 ethics charges. We'll talk it over with CNN's Jeffrey Toobin and Gloria Borger.

Scroll down to join the live chat during the program. It's your chance to share your thoughts on tonight's headlines. Keep in mind, you have a better chance of having your comment get past our moderators if you follow our rules.

Here are some of them:

1) Keep it short (we don't have time to read a "book")
2) Don't write in ALL CAPS (there's no need to yell)
3) Use your real name (first name only is fine)
4) No links
5) Watch your language (keep it G-rated; PG at worst - and that includes $#&*)

    Wow, scare people enough and they will allow anything! White people were so afraid of blacks that they allowed Jim Crow to rule for decades. Now its "Be afraid of the Mexicans, they're coming for you!"

    Anderson, the President is not alone. I do not know who Snooki is either and don't care about knowing who Snooki is. Too many more important things going on in this nation and the world for me to be concerned about who Snooki is.

    Good show AC360! This hour went by fast! Gotta love the President. I believe him that he didn't who Snooki is. He should have asked his speechwriter about that back in May.

    Hope everyone has a great evening!

    I think that the Sheriff Of Phoenix should be punished, why I say that is he says he is still going to look for illegal immigrants even after the judge has blocked that part of SB1070. I feel he is wrong and if he does do that then he needs to be punished. The only way he should be able to do that is ifa crime is committed and the illegal is arrested. But just to go out there just because he says so no. Does he think he is going on a fishinf trip or what?

    I live in 50 miles from the border in Arizona . When folks say "illegals" don't pay taxes, it is a lie and should be corrected. They pay sales tax and can receive a Taxpayer I.D. and work authorization card from INS and they pay income, payroll, etc. tax. I was born here but know dozens of people who have been in the U.S. for as long as 30yrs. and can't even get a green card.

    As usual, most people want a blanket, simple solution to a complex problem. SB1070 is bad for Arizona and there are many of us here who are against it.
