SUPPORT MALDEF’S FIGHT AGAINST ARIZONA ANTI-IMMIGRANT LAW TODAY!

Fifteen years ago, MALDEF went to court and successfully challenged Proposition 187, a voter-approved initiative in California requiring proof of legal status to access virtually all public services. The initiative’s enactment tore apart schools and communities across the state as fear and suspicion became pervasive, and the State wasted tens of millions of dollars defending a law ultimately struck down as unconstitutional.

Today, we face a similar law in Arizona. Arizona Governor Jan Brewer just signed SB 1070 into law which would require police officers to act on “reasonable suspicion” to determine a person’s immigration status and turn them over to ICE.

MALDEF called on the Governor to do what is right and veto this legislation, which poses a significant threat to the general welfare and fundamental freedoms of the people of Arizona. MALDEF will now do what it has successfully done in the past and defend the civil and human rights of Latinos in our courts.

With your help, we can make sure this doesn’t go any further and remind our Congressional leaders and the people of Arizona that this is not the way it is done in America. MALDEF vows to challenge the measure, but we need your help!
