Statement From Senator José Peralta Regarding Today’s Court Decision To Issue an Injunction Against Arizona’s Divisive Immigration Enforcement Law

 

“As a Dominican American who represents one of the most diverse communities in this country, I applaud Judge Susan Bolton of Federal District Court’s decision to issue an injunction against  Arizona’s divisive immigration enforcement law.  Allowing any governing body to legalize racial profiling is appalling and flies in the face of our core belief of “innocent until proven guilty”.  Today’s ruling is a victory for all Americans who value civil liberties. While today's victory goes along way we must continue this fight until All Americans are afforded the equal rights and protections that we hold dear in this country.”
