SB 1070 was signed into law in 2010. It is was the most vicious anti-immigrant law in the history of the nation to it's time. Sadly, the law has engendered copy-cat laws,including one that passed in Georgia, and two that failed in Florida and Colordo, which were even worse! We are deporting our youths, their mothers and fathers and the future of our nation!
After forcing 200,000 people into refugee status, after causing a rift in the unity of all people, after winning big headlines for politicians while costing tax payers millions, after the launching of a recall election against SB 1070 author Russell Pearce, Arizona wants tourists to come to their state. Yet some still stand by their discriminatory law!
1. Order a free map from the Arizona tourism board, a state agency at Arizona's expense;
2. Demand SB 1070 be repealed;
3. Demand President Barak Obama order the immediate halt to Dream Act eligible students, and to all immigrants who can show a basic claim for adjustment of status.
We put a price on hate! Every tourist dollar we send to Arizona is a buck more on the side of the SB 1070 crowd. We are fighting moral cancer so we understand we must suffer as we employ our peaceful chemotherapy in the fight against those who insist on hate as an agenda. Arizona invests huge dollars in their tourist bureau and they are delighted to send you a free map if you ask.
LET'S ORDER SO MANY FREE MAPS THEY DON'T HAVE ENOUGH TO SEND TO TOURISTS WHO ARE NOT RESPECTING THE BOYCOTT OF THE STATE!
Better yet, you get a free map and tourist package from Arizona, just in case you end up at a rally there!

- Arizona Governor
SB 1070 is an ugly law which divides families and communities. It has gained Sen. Russell Pearce and Gov. Jan Brewer headlines while costing tax payers millions. Now, Arizona has elected to reduce health care to the poor so it can fund continuing defense of this pernicious law. People are dying for lack of funding, yet Pearce and Brewer stand fast.
To Gov. Brewer, Russell Pearce and others, Your constituents have told you about the boycott of Arizona. They have told you about the high cost of hate. They have asked you to stop using immigrants as a political pawn for personal fame and power. So long as this law remains in effect we will oppose you where it hurts the most, your pocket.
We have launched boycotts, and SB 1070=NO Tourist campaigns. We have jammed your legal system with arrests from civil disobedience. We have mobilized a nation against the injustice which you have placed upon Arizona and the American people.
We now ask you to stop litigating the SB 1070 laws. We ask you to repeal hate. We ask you to join us in making a better America. Until you make this vital decision, we will continue our peaceful resistance. Please do what is right for Arizona.
To the president of the United States: We ask you to take the courageous stance of passing an executive order stopping:
1. The deportation of all Dream Act eligible students;
2. All other immigrants who can show a legitimate claim under Comprehensive Immigration Reform.
Until we find courageous leaders who can do what is right to unite our communities with the rest of the nation, action by the president is all we have left. If is the single most effective tool you have to compel Congress to pass comprehensive Immigration Reform (CIR) and the Dream Act.
Un Dia Sin Fronteras
Attorney at law
Please do what is right for the nation. Repeal SB 1070 and let your business people go back to work!
