A quick update to let everyone know that the Obama administration officially filed suit against SB1070. The suit is the best evidence that our immigration system is broken and must be fixed with comprehensive immigration reform that is just and fair.
From Promise Arizona:
The Obama Administration just filed suit against the state of Arizona for its racially charged SB1070 law, the most anti-immigrant and anti-civil rights law in the country. The law provides local law enforcement the power to question people who simply look “illegal,” a clear violation of civil liberties. The law goes into effect on July 29th.
Please sign the petition to thank President Obama and the Department of Justice for suing Arizona to stop this law, and urge him to keep up the pressure and follow through on their injunction to prevent the law from going into effect on July 29th until this lawsuit and the American people have had their day in federal court, as well as continue pushing for a real solution – comprehensive immigration reform.
Remember to celebrate this victory now while the nation gears up for days of action and civil disobedience on July 29th.
