Arizona County Sheriffs (all of them) are being sued pre-emptively by the ACLU before they even begin to enforce SB1070. Local news says the lawsuit alleges future racial profiling.
The population of Arizona is about 6 million which means Arizona is less than 2% of the population of the USA. Also, about 5 million of the 6 million residents of Arizona live in the Phoenix metropolitan area in Maricopa County. That means that the vast majority of the rest of the state is rural. These rural counties have low population and thus do not have the tax base to defend against these ridiculous lawsuits.
I know many people have donated to the state defense fund, Keep AZ Safe, and I personally thank you. You have no idea what it means to me because I cannot put it into words. As of today, over 100,000 people from all over the country (incuding Puerto Rico) have donated approximately $1.2 million.
If you could please help the Border Sheriffs in their defense as well. Any size donation is appreciated.
