Class Action Law Suit in Arizona

Per Richard I. Fleischer

A class action law suit , in US federal court, was recently filed challenging Arizona's harsh immigration enforcement law, SB 1070. The suit claims that SB 1070 violates the Supremacy Clause of the US constitution in that it conflicts with and is preempted by Federal immigration laws.
Other parts of the suit claim that SB 1070 violates the equal protection rights under the Fourteenth Amendment of the Constitution as it "targets" those who are racial and national origin minorities by subjecting them to stop because of their race and/or national origin.
Also, the First Amendment of the US Constitution is is violated, the suit says, for violation of freedom of speech and the Fourth Amendment's prohibition on unreasonable searches and seizures, and due process under the Fourteenth Amendment.

This is only one of a number of suits that are filed and will be filed concerning this law to be.
