Video: SB 1070 Protest Outside of Hearing
Opponents of Arizona's immigration law, SB 1070, told a federal judge on Tuesday, August 21, that the measure will result in racial profiling and prolonged detention of Latinos. They are trying to block a United States Supreme Court ruling that allows police to question people about their immigration status during routine traffic stops and the enforcement of other laws. Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer testified at the hearing that she didn't believe the law was racist. U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton didn't rule Tuesday after hearing arguments for both sides.
