Arizona Creates 'Zero Tolerance' Zone

Prensa Hispana, Posted: Mar 21, 2010

PHOENIX -- Arizona has become the leading state in the nation in creating "anti-immigrant" legislation, Rev. Miguel Rivera, chairman of The National Coalition of Latino Clergy and Christian Leaders (CONLAMIC), told the Spanish-language weekly newspaper Prensa Hispana. The reverend, who is known for his controversial campaign against undocumented immigrants' participation in the census, came to Arizona to participate in local mobilizations against legislation that would criminalize undocumented immigrants. Rivera urged Republican Governor Jan Brewer to veto the legislation that is expected to come to her desk in the coming weeks.

Rivera was joined by local activists and legislators who believe the only way to change the anti-immigrant climate in the state is through the vote.

The marches were useful for a while, but now it's time to vote to make a change, said Ben Miranda, a Democratic representative and co-chair of the Arizona Latino Caucus.
