Robert Poch was interviewed by the History News Network on April 16, 2015 during the annual meeting of the Organization of American Historians. In the interview he observes that the New York Times inadvertently misconstrued Arizona’s immigration fight with the Department of Justice. The Times claimed it was a modern example of nullification. It wasn’t, says Poch.
