Supreme Inhumanity? - Arizona Immigration Decision

6/26/12 - Earlier this week the Supreme Court announced their decision on the constitutionality of Arizona's immigration law (SB 1070).

By upholding the right of Arizona law enforcement to require any individual detained to produce immigration documents the court has perpetuated the sense of fear and mistrust that many Latino citizens already experience. The U.S. Jesuit Conference, Jesuit Refugee Service USA, and the Kino Border Initiative have offered a public statement on the court's action.
