Morally Offensive Enforcement Schemes

By Robert Rubin

Josh Rolnick, The Sh'ma Institute, November 2010

The author, a civil rights attorney, examines the ethical, legal and constitutional issues relating to SB1070, a controversial Arizona state law intended to apprehend illegal immigrants. The author argues that the law infringes upon civil liberties, interferes with other law enforcement activities such as community policing, and is bound up generally in a troubling larger trend of anti-immigrant sentiment which is founded on misunderstandings of the immigration situation.
