Posted 6:49 PM 6/25/2012 : SB 1070 protestors take to the street
TUCSON - The Arizona State Building was busy with numerous protests Monday.
Community members gathered to discuss the impact the Supreme Court's ruling will have for Tucson. Numerous council members were in attendance, along with one of Southern Arizona's ACLU representatives.
At 4:30 p.m., a group of protestors filled the street corner with chants and signs vocalizing their opposition. Many of the protestors say today was bittersweet, after three of the four provisions were rejected. Their main issue with 2B, the upheld provision, is that it invites racial profiling.
One of the opponents, Monica Parker, says she came out to show her disappointment in the ruling.
"I don't agree with 1070 at all. I think the Supreme Court made a serious mistake. I've pretty much lost faith with the Suprme Court over this one."
Another rally attendee, Terry Higura, agrees.
"I think this is just going to open up a Pandora's box. More wasted money over ridiculous laws like this that are not going to win in courts."
Mike Wilson, from the Border Action Network, says this is not the end of the immigration argument.
"We are going to continue this struggle for human rights and for human dignity. This business is unfinished."
According to Tucson City councilwoman, Regina Romero, Tuesday's Mayor and Council meeting will discuss this issue further, and the protestors say they will be back at the Arizona State Building tomorrow starting at 4:30 p.m.
