Leagues File Amicus Brief in lawsuit challening AZ immigration law

The League of Women Voters of Arizona and the League of Women Voters of the U.S. joined this lawsuit challenging the recently-enacted SB 1070 in Arizona, purported to be an attempt to curb illegal immigration, that “will subject United States citizens and legal residents who are members of racial and ethnic minority groups, and particularly those who may be perceived to be somehow ‘foreign,’ to the disruption, stress, and humiliation of detention and interrogation.”

RE:     Climate and Energy Policy

It is time for the United States Senate to act against climate change and to put in place an effective energy policy for our nation.  These twin issues have been left to fester for far too long, endangering our health and environment, our national security and world leadership, and our jobs and the economy.
