On the heels of the Department of Justice’s lawsuit against Arizona’s immigration law SB1070 another notable institution has filed suit against the state. The League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) filed their suit specifically speaking against the training video used for Arizona police officers “about who is and who is not really deportable”. LULAC feels officers will focus solely on appearance and ethnic profiling.
LULAC is one of the oldest Hispanic civil rights organizations in the country created in 1929 and boosts a membership of 115,000. Their suit was filed in the same federal courthouse as the 6 other lawsuits and will be heard by U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton. SB1070 is due to take effect in 18 days on July 29th.
