Anti-Defamation League Files Brief Opposing AZ Immigration Law



Phoenix, AZ, … Calling Arizona's restrictive new law on immigration, "ill-conceived and misguided," the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) has filed an amicus brief in the U.S. District Court for Arizona in an effort to stop the legislation from going into effect.

           

Miriam Weisman, ADL Arizona Regional Chair, and Bill Straus, ADL Arizona Regional Director, issued the following statement:

 

Rather than making 

Arizona more secure, we believe this law will have the opposite effect.  Fear of heightened law enforcement scrutiny about immigration status will deter victims and witnesses from coming forward and cooperating with the police, making it significantly more difficult for police to do their jobs.

 

We understand that secure borders are a legitimate concern, but SB 1070 does not effectively address that concern.  Rather, this bill drives a wedge between the Latino community - whose members are frequent targets of bias-motivated violence - and those local law enforcement agencies entrusted with protecting them.  

 

The bill is a manifestation of anger and frustration, fueled by exaggerated fears of violence and passed against a backdrop of increasing xenophobia.  It is ill-conceived, misguided, and should not be implemented. 

ADL is a longtime advocate of community–police partnerships to prevent, investigate and solve hate and bias-motivated crimes.  The League's brief was prepared with the assistance of David J. Bodney and Peter S. Kozinets of the Phoenix office of Steptoe & Johnson LLP.


The Anti-Defamation League, founded in 1913, is the world's leading organization fighting anti-Semitism through programs and services that counteract hatred, prejudice and bigotry.
