In a lawsuit against Arizona demonstrating racial profiling by the Arizona immigration law, ACLU released thousands of emails written by former state senator Russell Pearce mentioning among other things:

The Arizona Immigration laws (SB 1070) should not be taken lightly by any immigrant community because it goes against the real fabric of the U.S Constitution.

We hope the public understands that SB 1070 is not only against “illegal immigrants” but against ALL immigrants and as such we should all be prepared to protect our human rights.
