Supreme Court SB1070 Argument Heightens Necessity for White House Action in Arizona
Court Must Strike Down Unconstitutional SB1070, Administration Must Cut Ties with Racial Profiling State
04.25.2012 Phoenix, AZ.
In response to reports from within Supreme Court that Justices expressed approval toward several parts of SB 1070 , Carlos Garcia of Puente Arizona released the following statement:
“SB 1070 is unconstitutional, and we expect it to be struck down by the Supreme Court. But SB 1070 is a symptom of a much larger problem, and it’s one that has been made worse by President Obama’s own immigration policies that use people like Sheriff Arpaio as ‘force multipliers.’ The spin around today’s Supreme Court spectacle masks the fact that the Department of Homeland Security continues to advance programs that criminalize immigrants, and the Department of Justice has still failed in its duty to civil rights violations it has merely described for three years.
