The Supreme Court ruled today on Arizona’s controversial SB 1070 immigration law, allowing the worst part of the law that institutes racial profiling to continue.
Join us this morning to rally against this decision:
San Diego County Administration Building
June 25, 2012
1600 Pacific Highway, San Diego CA 92101
Today’s decision opens the door to a new wave of racial profiling laws that will target and harass Latinos at precisely the time we should be focused on a constructive dialogue to finally get real, comprehensive immigration reform.
San Diego Labor Council Secretary-Treasurer/CEO Lorena Gonzalez made the following statement in response to today’s Supreme Court ruling on Arizona’s SB 1070 law:
“The Supreme Court’s disappointing though expected ruling on Arizona’s SB 1070 opens the door to a new wave of racial profiling across the country. This approach does not work and must be condemned whenever and wherever it shows itself. The decision further underscores the desperate need for Congress to finally get serious about comprehensive immigration reform.”
The first step is to voice our opposition. So join us at the County Administration Building, 11 a.m. to speak out for justice.
