Arizona SB 1070: Fighting the Effect of Anti-Immigration Bills against Latino Families
Inter-Cultural Human Rights Law Review (2011)
  • David Cantor, Mr., St. Thomas University
Abstract
Arizona S.B. 1070 represents a threat to the Latino community’s ability to guarantee that their children will have access to an education, to essential health benefits, and to immunization programs, to name a few. Fear of persecution by law enforcement may lead parents to discourage any association with authorities, making the community, and by association their children, targets of crimes and abuses. Imposition of sanctions upon employers will lead businesses to err on the side of discrimination when hiring Latinos, leading families to hardship.
