Thank President Obama For Filing Suit Against Arizona's "Show Me Your Papers" Law

    1. Petition by

      Promise Arizona

The Obama Administration just filed suit against the state of Arizona for its racially charged SB1070 law, the most anti-immigrant and anti-civil rights law in the country. The law provides local law enforcement the power to question people who simply look "illegal," a clear violation of civil liberties. The law goes into effect on July 29th.

Please sign the petition to thank President Obama and the Department of Justice for suing Arizona to stop this law, and urge him to keep up the pressure and follow through on their injunction to prevent the law from going into effect on July 29th until this lawsuit and the American people have had their day in federal court, as well as continue pushing for a real solution - comprehensive immigration reform.
