On Tuesday, August 21st at 10:00 a.m. MST/PDT/1:00 p.m. EDT, U.S. U.S. District Court Judge Susan Bolton will hold a hearing on the preliminary injunction request to block Section 2(B) of SB 1070 as well as a provision relating to harboring and transporting of undocumented immigrants. Karen Tumlin, managing attorney at the National Immigration Law Center, will present oral arguments on behalf of the civil rights coalition.
The coalition includes the American Civil Liberties Union; MALDEF; National Immigration Law Center (NILC); the National Day Laborer Organizing Network (NDLON); Asian Pacific American Legal Center (APALC); Asian American Justice Center (AAJC), both members of the Asian American Center for Advancing Justice; and the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP).
Arizona's SB 1070 Section 2(B) requires police to demand "papers" from people they stop who they suspect are not authorized to be in the U.S., and criminalizes immigrants for failing to carry immigration papers. The unconstitutional law, the groups say, encourages racial profiling, endangers public safety, and betrays American values.

WHO: Karen Tumlin, managing attorney at the National Immigration Law Center
Omar Jadwat, senior staff attorney with the ACLU Immigrants’ Rights Project
