Al Sharpton: We're Ready to Commit Civil Disobedience Over Arizona Immigration Bill
70% of Arizona voters agree with new immigration legislation signed into law on Friday.
But, not Al Sharpton or Barack Obama.
And, New York City’s Al Franken says he’s ready to organize protests and commit civil disobedience over the new Arizona immigration law.
The New York Post reported, via Free Republic:
The Rev. Al Sharpton says he will challenge Arizona’s new immigration bill in court and on the streets.
Sharpton is joining Lillian Rodriguez Lopez from the Hispanic Federation to announce a legal challenge to the bill. They say activists are also prepared to commit civil disobedience to fight the Arizona immigration bill.
Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer signed the bill Friday. It requires police to question people about their immigration status — including asking for identification — if they suspect someone is in the country illegally.
The law will take effect in late July or early August.
At least he gave the police a warning. Now they can be ready for him.
