Progressive States Action and State Legislators for Progressive
Immigration Policy, a group of state legislators committed to
supporting comprehensive immigration reform that reflects our core
values as a nation, released this statement in response to the
passage of Arizona's Senate Bill 1070.
This week, the Arizona Senate passed the nation's most draconian
immigration law - which criminalizes the undocumented and those
accused of assisting them - that many critics say will drive racial
profiling and further undermine Arizona's devastated economy. The bill
now awaits now awaits Governor Jan Brewer's veto or approval.
