Proof of Racist Roots of SB 1070

The argument that I keep hearing in defense of SB 1070 is that it’s simply targeting illegal immigration, and that there’s no racist undertones intended. It’s an opinion that I respect, but also respectfully disagree with.  This bill did not originate solely from the desire to eradicate illegal acts and ensure the safety of our country.

Check out this enlightening clip from The Rachel Maddow show on information on the people who spawned this law: Russell Pearce, The Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), and more.  As always, I welcome constructive comments and rebuttal!
