The Hispanic Chamber of Commerce said Monday that Supreme Court's ruling on Arizona's SB 1070 immigration was a "disappointment," though the group's president welcomed major parts of the ruling. The group had filed an amicus brief in the case calling for the entire law to be struck down, and expressed concern that the most controversial section -- the so-called "show me your papers" law -- was not thrown out by the Court.
From USHCC President Javier Palomarez:
“Arizona may have understandable frustrations with problems arising from illegal immigration, but the Arizona legislature and Governor Brewer overstepped their bounds by passing a sweeping anti-immigrant law. We are glad the Supreme Court shares our view.
"SB1070 has dramatically hurt businesses in Arizona and cost the state thousands of jobs. The Hispanic-American business community will continue to fight the law until it is fully repealed.”
