The US supreme court today upheld the most “dangerous” and controversial part of the Arizona Immigration law today. It  almost ‘legalized’ racial profiling.  This is a very dark day for America. Read the full US Supreme Court Decision on the matter.

Because Freedom Can't Protect Itself

Hours ago, the Supreme Court let stand the most reprehensible and dangerous provision of Arizona’s anti-immigrant racial profiling law.

When local police can stop and detain anyone they perceive as “foreign” because of their skin color, their accent or their surname, it is a watershed moment for civil rights.

Our path forward is now clear. We have to work relentlessly until racial profiling is ended once and for all. The Court hasn’t yet rejected “show me your papers” laws, but America must.

Stand with us. Sign and share the pledge: America Rejects Racial Profiling.

Immediately after the Court issued its ruling, the ACLU announced a special fund created by a few of our top donors to advance our nationwide efforts to stop “show me your papers” anti-immigrant laws from spreading across America.

So far, we’ve raised $8.77 million. Now our goal is to match that $8.77 million with a dramatic outpouring of grassroots opposition to laws that target people based on how they look.

Let’s make sure that everyone — from the steps of the Supreme Court to the outskirts of Arizona — knows that America Rejects Racial Profiling.

Sign and share the pledge: America Rejects Racial Profiling.

Law enforcement in Arizona can now demand “papers” from anyone they suspect of being here unlawfully. The only criteria they could possibly be using for this supposed suspicion is the way a person looks or sounds.

Thank you for standing with us, and for all that you do for the ACLU.

For freedom,

Anthony D. Romero
Executive Director, ACLU
