LOS ANGELES, CA – The coalition representing the plaintiffs in the ongoing civil rights legal challenge to SB 1070, Friendly House v. Whiting, sent a letter to counsel for all defendants, including Governor Brewer, explaining that SB1070 's racial profiling provision, Section 2 (B), cannot be implemented unless a federal court dissolves the injunction. The U.S. Supreme Court’s recent ruling in Arizona v. United States did not lift the injunction, and the case will be sent to the lower courts for further proceedings. As a result, no law enforcement agency in Arizona should currently be implementing Section 2(B).
The civil rights coalition includes the ACLU, NILC, MALDEF, NDLON and the ACLU of Arizona as well as APALC and AAJC, both members of the Asian American Center for Advancing Justice.
