VIDEO: A Look at Arizona’s SB1070 with Marshall Fitz and Eduardo Garcia
On April 25, the U.S. Supreme Court will begin hearing arguments in a landmark case surrounding Arizona’s SB 1070 that could impact how states enforce immigration law at the local level. We already know how discriminatory law enforcement can be in places like Maricopa County, Arizona—if the Supreme Court upholds laws like SB 1070 it would only exasperate an already hostile environment for citizens and immigrants alike.
Check out the first of a two-part video series on this case above, where I sit down with Marshall Fitz, director of immigration policy at the Center for American Progress, our parent organization, to talk about the law, the Supreme Court, and what’s at stake.
We anticipate a ruling on the case this summer. In the meantime, Campus Progress will be following this story closely and will provide you with all you need to know as the case develops.
