"Amnesty International believes that if the Supreme Court hands down a decision in favor of SB 1070, this places immigrant, Latino and Indigenous communities in Arizona at increased risk of racial profiling and discriminatory treatment. The federal government cannot even enforce this country's immigration laws with 100 percent accuracy as individuals with claims for U.S. citizenship are detained for as long as a year and some American citizens have even been deported. Giving states this authority would make a mockery of both the U.S. Constitution and the United States' obligations under international law.
If SB 1070 is ruled to be constitutional, similar laws will continue to be enacted in states all across the United States, exposing communities in every state to discriminatory treatment or other human rights violations."
