ACLU and Other Legal Groups Challenge AZ Immigration Law

The American Civil Liberties Union (“ACLU”) and a coalition of civil rights groups filed a class action lawsuit today in the U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona challenging Arizona’s new law requiring police to demand “papers” from people they stop who they suspect are not authorized to be in the U.S.  The extreme law, the coalition charged, invites the racial profiling of people of color, violates the First Amendment and interferes with federal law.
