Emails Show Racist Motivation Behind Arizona Immigration Law

•, Common Dreams staff
 The American Civil Liberties Union has released thousands of emails from a former Arizona legislator which they say prove that the controversial Arizona immigration law SB1070 was racially motivated. The slew of emails sent or forwarded from former Senator Russell Pearce (R), architect of the law, promoted discrimination and racial prejudice and lied about immigration issues, ACLU contends.
The e-mails were acquired through a public records request to the state legislature. The ACLU included many of the emails in a legal filing on Thursday, asking U.S. District Court Judge Susan Bolton to prevent the 'show me your papers' section of the law, slated to go into effect.

What a pity IF those emails are truthfully reported because they they appear to show some race baiting.

I'll bet if we get rid of food stamps , hospitals being forced to provide free emergency medical care to the 'indigent' and the highly abused Federal Income Tax credit, this illegal immigration and illegal voting will disappear along with Pearce's 'illegal' thinking.
