We will prevent that from happening. The brave work of immigrants in Arizona and around the country will ensure that ultimately we’re on the winning side of history. Arizona’s racial profiling law pushes hard-working immigrants to the margins of society and makes a mockery of our nation’s proud immigrant heritage. However, the tide is turning. We will continue to fight in Arizona, in court and on the streets, until SB 1070 is erased in its entirety and until civil rights are fully respected in Arizona.
America’s proudest history is defined by moments when people deemed ‘illegal’ have fought for and won their emancipation, and today is no different. The very people Arizona seeks to incarcerate and expel will be the people who uphold America’s most cherished constitutional values.”
