The Fight to Stop SB 1070 Continues

An Arizona federal judge followed the US Supreme Court’s recent ruling on SB 1070 and allowed provision 2(B) to go into effect Tuesday.

Provision 2(B) essentially legalizes racial profiling by granting police officers the right to use “reasonable suspicion” in determining a person’s citizenship status.

Although Governor Brewer released a statement saying laws protecting against racial profiling and discrimination would be respected, the truth is, police officers have already been caught using SB 1070 to intimidate and coerce.

Regardless of what the courts have said, students and community organizations are vowing to continue the fight to completely repeal SB 1070.

We will not comply!
