Congresswoman: White Supremacists Behind Arizona Immigration Law

Whittier Daily News (Whittier, California), June 2, 2010


“The Arizona laws are not a mistake,” said [Rep. Linda] Sanchez, D-Lakewood, referring to Arizona’s S.B. 1070, {snip}.

“They’re not accidental or one person’s crazy idea.” “There’s a concerted effort behind promoting these kinds of laws on a state-by-state basis by people who have ties to white supremacy groups,” Sanchez said.

“It’s been documented. It’s not mainstream politics. (Legislators) are being approached by folks, who are front organizations who are white supremacist hate groups. They propose the language of these bills and get people to carry these bills in the state legislatures,” she said.
