On April 23, 2010, Arizona Governor Janis Brewer (R) signed Senate Bill 1070, the most radical immigration legislation in the United States, effectively permitting racial profiling in the state of Arizona. The law requires police to demand immigration papers from anyone who they have a "reasonable suspicion" is in the country illegally. This blog will chronicle the major events regarding this racist and inhumane law.
We enthusiastically encourage a boycott of the State of Arizona until the law is repealed.

If you're a Hispanic-American driving to the Grand Canyon, you risk the humiliation of being racially profiled and quite possibly arrested for not having your "papers." Until this law is repealed, please take an alternative vacation instead. Until then, enjoy photographs instead.
