Today, U.S. Judge Susan Bolton temporarily blocked the most dangerous components of SB 1070, Arizona’s racial profiling law.

Judge Bolton’s injunction on SB 1070 is a clear indication that the infamous law is misguided.
Tomorrow AFSC will organize events from coast to coast in solidarity with Arizona’s immigrant communities and send teams of human rights observers there as well. AFSC has signed an amicus brief against the law.
We will keep advocating for humane immigration policies that guarantee the worth and dignity of all people and prevents local and state governments from adopting ill-conceived legislation. For more of AFSC’s immigration policy recommendations, click here
