Arizona Immigration SB1070 – 15 states consider passing similar law!

by Chhayal on February 4, 2011

Despite the grant of an injunction blocking parts of the Arizona trailblazing law,  at least 15 state legislatures are considering measures modeled after provisions of SB1070 that made Arizona the first state to allow police to question the immigration status of anyone they suspect is in the country illegally. In July 2010, a U.S. district judge granted the Obama administration’s request for an injunction blocking parts of the trailblazing law, which raised many legal questions, including whether local officials can legally enforce federal immigration law and whether such local enforcement could lead to unconstitutional racial profiling.

An  article  from MSNBC highlights the legislation proposed in at least 15 other states, all modeled after Arizona SB1070.
