In case you haven't heard, last month Arizona recently decided to create a law that allows its' officers to stop any individual they might suspect as being an illegal immigrant and ask them for their proof of citizenship. This... is obviously one of the most inherently racist laws passed in this country in quite a while, I imagine. However, that seems to be fueling the fire of bigotry now as now some lawmakers are considering changing the status of babies born to illegals in this country from "citizen" to "illegal." Why are these people so threatened by immigrants? Most people who come to this country come to work hard and make a better life for themselves and their families. Many of these individuals end up having to work in terrible conditions on par with modern day slavery, and yet this country does nothing for them and/or to reprimand those who take advantage of their illegal status.
Please visit the ACLU's page for ways you can help to stop Arizona's racism in its' tracks and prevent the spread of this kind of hateful thinking!
