Proud to be a member of the ACLU. This organization champions the rights of the underdog and fights the good fight on behalf of innocent people under attack.
In this case, a twisted law, SB1070 has been passed in Az, which tramples on the rights of citizens of color by inviting racial profiling. When the authors of the bill cannot provide an answer as to what criteria should be used to identify an "illegal alien" you know this is a job for the ACLU.
No amount of anti-immigrant rhetoric or mass appeal can ever justify a law that throws out our rights. The framers were wise in providing for a judicial branch to limit these types of expedient if not wrong-minded laws.
Thanks to the ACLU for taking up yet another just cause.
