The new law in Arizona is very questionable. It states that: "For any lawful contact made by a law enforcement official or a law enforcement agency of this state or a law enforcement official or a law enforcement agency of a county, city, town or other political subdivision of this state where reasonable suspicion exists that the person is an alien who is unlawfully present in the United States, a reasonable attempt shall be made, when practicable, to determine the immigration status of the person, except if the determination may hinder or obstruct an investigation."
The part about reasonable suspicion is very loose and sounds like a loop hole for racial profiling (which is illegal in the state of Arizona).
We would like you to sign this petition to help change the new law passed in Arizona.
So that police officers will not be able to have a chance to get away with racially profiling anyone in the state of Arizona.
