The AK Press blog, Revolution by the Book, has a list of links to organizations that can help you find something concrete to do about the crazy immigration situation in Arizona:
Get to Arizona!: “A number of people have asked me about how to support groups doing good work against the nasty immigration shit going on in Arizona. Work that doesn’t limit itself to ‘mere’ reform. I’ve also been sad witness to several toothless Facebook groups that seem to limit ‘support’ to pressing a few buttons on your computer keyboard to register your dissatisfaction…uh, and that’s it….
And remember the words of Public Enemy in ‘By the Time I Get to Arizona’: ‘Neither party is mine, not the jackass or the elephant.’”

DJ Spooky recently released a remix of Public Enemy’s “By the Time I Get To Arizona” (a track from the 1991 album Apocalypse 91… The Enemy Strikes Black) as a response to the current situation down there:
DJ Spooky and Chuck D remix “By the Time I Get to Arizona” in honor of anti-immigrant law: “DJ Spooky sez, “I just finished a studio session with Chuck D from Public Enemy. In the wake of Republican Governor Jan Brewer’s appalling anti-immigrant law, me and Chuck D were rappin’ and we decided to put together an update of his classic track ‘By The Time I get To Arizona.’

Here’s the remix… It rocks.
