Video via @90DaysToPhoenix: “Jan Brewer Unleashing Police on Arizona Students”

July 17, 2010

Civil Rights Attorney, Richard Martinez explains how Arizona’s SB 1070 differs from Federal Immigration Law. Martinez is one of the attorneys involved in two lawsuits representing police officers in Phoenix and Tucson that believe the new law would force them to violate the U.S. Constitution. It would specially put them in a difficult situation when they come in contact with minors on schools, said Martinez. “There’s nothing that protects minors, it compels all persons there’s no age distinction on 1070,” he added. The first hearing took place this Thursday in front of judge Susan Bolton. The impact to students was raised as a key concern by the litigants.
