  • New law polarises race relations in Arizona | Show Racism The Red Card
    understand that illegal immigration is a problem of monumental proportion for these United States but SB 1070 is not the answer It is not the answer for example for those immigrant children who are in Arizona because their parents brought them here in search of that dream of America that also drew me to these shores Children who hand on heart pledge allegiance to the United States flag every day in elementary school Children who have committed no crime but who are criminalized nonetheless because they don t have papers They don t have papers because there is no legal pathway to citizenship for them They would have to go back to their country of origin a country now foreign to them for all intents and purposes a country that will place them at the back of the line to apply to return to the United States the only country they know a line where the wait is about 10 years Commenting on SB1070 Archbishop Desmond Tutu raised the specter of apartheid where black Africans could be jailed for being in their own country without their papers degraded and deemed less worthy because of the color of their skin Abominations such as Apartheid do not start with an entire population suddenly becoming inhumane They start here They start with stripping people of rights and dignity such as the right to be presumed innocent until proven guilty Not because it is right but because you can As I see it SB1070 needs to sit on a shelf along with the pass laws of Apartheid the Internment Act Law in Northern Ireland and that book of laws in Nazi Germany prior to World War II that required Jews to carry papers and citizens to prove they weren t Jewish As of this writing the American Civil Liberties Union ACLU MALDEF and the National Immigration Center are doing all in their power to legally challenge SB1070 Important to note what MALDEF did in California some years ago successfully challenging Proposition 187 a voter approved initiative that required proof of legal status to access virtually all public services As fear and suspicion grew following the enactment of 187 schools and communities were torn apart and the state wasted tens of millions of dollars in an effort to defend an unconstitutional law which eventually was struck down Without a doubt SB1070 has reawakened in many of us the spirit that defines the transcendent struggle for human rights I recall the late 1980s when I first came to the United States and found myself in an Arizona that refused to create a legal holiday honoring Dr Martin Luther King I remember Bono refusing to play until that recalcitrant state legislature approved the holiday An economic boycott was key in forcing the legislature to honor Dr King s legacy Over two decades later we find ourselves considering similar strategies in Arizona including a boycott Just this week the local newspaper The Arizona Republic reported the following groups
