Phoenix billboard warns of racial profiling

By Jennifer Thomas at Arizona News

PHOENIX — A new billboard is stirring up even more controversy over Senate Bill 1070.

The sign that just went up at Camelback Road and Third Street is a political statement on Arizona’s new law targeting illegal immigrants.

It reads, “Have your papers ready — Racial profiling just ahead.”

The sign was paid for by the Latino-rights group Brave New Foundation. They believe all Hispanics, even legal ones, will be harassed by police under SB1070.

Supporters of the law say that will not happen and people who are here legally have nothing to fear.
