What is the SB 1611?

The SB 1611 is the proposed anti-immigrant law that will soon be struggling to be passed in the state of Arizona. Arizona is so unsatisfied with their first anti-immigration bill, the SB 1070 that they had to come out with a new bill to get rid of free health care and educational services to undocumented immigrants. The SB 1611 is unconstitutional just like the SB 1070 with the difference that it is targeting the immigrant youth population. The bill would also deny citizenship to children of undocumented immigrants, make driving a crime for undocumented immigrants and give penalties to those who choose to employ or fail to report undocumented immigrants. It seems that as soon as we take one step forward towards finding a solution for undocumented immigrants (Utah’s new Guest workers program), and then we take a step backward with the SB 1611. This new bill will intensify social inequalities, promote nativism, and neglect the most vulnerable population: immigrant youth.
