The Case Against AZ SB1070 Section 2B

Press Conference
Tuesday August 21, 2012
Federal District Court
Phoenix, AZ
Challenging Section 2B of AZ SB1070

"It is inappropriate to legislate in the United States based on either national origin or race.  If it can be shown that this was a motivating consideration it is the equivalent of legislative poison and the law must be stopped."
Attorney Karen Tumlin, National Immigration Law Center

Statement to the press, Wednesday July 18, 2012 

"The intent of AZ SB1070 is malicious, criminally malicious. The most obscene aspect of this malicious intent is the blatant fact that AZ SB1070 was written as a deliberate act of war, a war of attrition against dark skinned Mexican families, barrios, communities, and organizations. A war of attrition cannot be regulated, it cannot be sanitized with Police Orders of procedure, it cannot be considered a legitimate act of law at all. 
It is an act of War in violation of the Peace established by the 1848 Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo (US-Mexico). Section (2b) must be enjoined by the US courts, not just to enforce equal protection, but to reassert the rule of law itself, with Universal Human Rights as the norm."
