*“Anti-immigrant, anti-American”*


 


 State Senator Jose Peralta supports Congressman Raul Grijalva’s opposition


to Arizona State legislature bill SB1070 Peralta said “I support Arizona


Congressman Raul Grijalva’s objection to SB1070. As a Dominican American


who represents one of the most diverse communities in this country, I find


Arizona’s SB1070 anti-immigrant, anti-American and unconstitutional. This


bill does not address comprehensive immigration reform; instead it will


restrict civil rights and further marginalize immigrant communities. We


cannot allow any governing body in this country to legalize profiling based


on race, gender or religion.”


 


SB 1070, will require police to stop and question any individual suspected


of being an illegal immigrant. Anyone questioned by the police will be


required to provide documentation verifying U.S. citizenship.
