Washington DC, July 15 — As the nation prepares for Arizona’s racial profiling law, SB 1070, to go into effect in less than two weeks, a delegation on children and their advocates made an urgent plea before members of Congress Thursday. At a press conference, in legislative visits, and at an ad-hoc Congressional hearing, two young victims of our nation’s broken immigration system recounted their experience of being separated from their perants as a result of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s enforcement practices. The children and their advocates called on Congress to conduct a thorough review of the nation’s immigration enforcement policies and the long-lasting effects that they have on children and families.
