Nashville, Tenn. (UMNS) - Phoenix Area Bishop Minerva Carcaño joined other faith leaders to oppose an Arizona law that many believe will result in racial profiling in order to reduce illegal immigration. "This bill does nothing to address any border security concerns," said the bishop.
"The passage of SB1070 demonstrates why America needs comprehensive immigration reform. Frustration with our broken immigration system is driving Arizona to make inappropriate and self-defeating efforts in this area. We want our broken immigration system to be healed through a just transformation of the law at the appropriate federal level of jurisdiction, which makes it possible to meet the labor needs of American business while making our border secure."
