Day laborers pledge to continue fight against discriminatory law at community level, Look to California for Alternate Direction
September 18. Phoenix, AZ.
In response to the lifting of the injunction against section 2b, the racial profiling provision of Arizona’s SB1070, Pablo Alvarado, the director of the National Day Laborer Organizing Network, issued the following statement,
“Laws requiring people to be judged by the color of their skin have no place in the US. Not today and not ever. While courts have yet to stop all of SB1070, all of us who believe in human rights and cherished constitutional values have an obligation to do everything we can to ensure that Arizona’s current lawmakers are on the losing side of history.
