“Being Brown is not a Crime”:
Props to American Apparel:
“American Apparel printed these “legalize arizona” tees and is giving them away at Arizona stores with any purchase (even a $3.50 headband..).”
The students and faculty and staff of the University of Arizona publicly decry the musguided law SB1070. We believe that it is a law based in fear and racism. The law targets not only immigrants, but all Latinos (even those who are U.S. citizens) as well as any U.S. citizen who may associate with members of either group. WE want to halt the prejudicial momentum of Arizona’s legislators and keep the campus of the University of Arizona a free safe place for persons of all races, backgrounds and ethnicities.
Our new Legalize Arizona T-shirt comes in Orange/White and Orange/Purple. It features 100% Fine Jersey cotton and a durable rib neckband.
There are roughly 12 million undocumented immigrants living in the U.S. They have families, homes, cars and lives, just like you. They are active members of the U.S. economy and society. They are not “invaders” and should not be treated like criminals. Everyone should be aware of how immigrants (legal or not) are woven into our everyday lives, and the growth and success of our country. Immigration reform now.
