The State of Arizona passed SB1070. This law will call for regular police officers to request documentation from people to ascertain whether or not they are undocumented. This is racial profiling and discrimination, as the officers will be relying on the appearance of people to detain them. Many US citizens and residents will be wrongfully harassed and detained. We can vote with our dollars! Boycott the State of Arizona by vowing not to spend your vacation dollars in that state, whether that be by not engaging in tourism in Arizona, by not doing business within the state, or by not buying anything that comes from Arizona, (paying specific attention to corporations and businesses that support these mean spirited laws like SB1070, as well as, those supporting the likes of Sherrif Joe Arpaio and Senator Russell Pearce) until such a time that this law is overturned or ruled unconstitutional. Racial profiling and discrimination in any way, shape, or form, against any race or ethnic community, must not be tolerated. We must all stand together regardless of our racial and ethnic background. Immigration is a matter for the federal authorities to handle and should not to be delegated to the average police officer who is not trained in immigration law.

El Estado de Arizona acaba de pasar la ley SB1070. Bajo esta ley los policias comunes tendran que pedirles documentos a personas para determinar si ellos son indocumentados. Esto es nada mas que discriminacion porque los oficiales se fijaran en el color de la piel, la raza, y el grupo etnico de las personas presuntamentes sospechosos de ser indocumentados. Muchos ciudadanos y residentes seran detenidos falsamente y hostigados. Podemos votar con nuestros dolares! Unase a la lucha y promete ser parte de la huelga "Boycott" en contra de Arizona! Prometa no usar su dinero de sus vacaciones o viajes, ni en productos, servicios, ni en nada de negocios, que tenga que ver con el Estado de Arizona (especificamente en contra de corporaciones y negocios  que apoyan a leyes como la SB1070 y en contra de los que apoyan aquellos como el Alguacil Joe Arpaio y el Senador Russell Pearce) hasta que se anule esta ley SB1070, o hasta que sea declarada incontistucional. La discriminacion, en todas sus formas, en contra de cualquier raza o comunidad, no se debe tolerar jamas. Todos debemos estar unidos en esta pelea, no importa de que raza o pais seamos. La inmigracion es un asunto del gobierno federal y no se debe delegar esta responsabilidad a unos policias comunes los cuales no saben de las leyes federales, y mucho menos de la inmigracion.

Honorable Officials:
We the undersigned are appalled by the passage of SB1070. This law will call on regular police officers to determine whether or not people are undocumented. This law is in essence legalizing the practice of discrimination and legitimizing racism because the officers will rely on the ethnicity, race, and skin color of the people to arrest them. All people, whether undocumented, residents, or citizens, are human beings, and as such, are afforded equal protections under the laws as guaranteed by the 14th amendment. No one should live in fear of asking the police for help, and no one should live in fear of serving as a witness to assist the police in solving a crime. We therefore respectfully, do hereby vow to boycott the State of Arizona, and will not be spending our vacation dollars, will not do business within Arizona, nor will we buy products or services from Arizona, until such a time that this law is deemed unconstitutional, is overturned, or rejected by the authorities of the State of Arizona. Your attention to this matter is most greatly appreciated.
