Support Our Law Enforcement and Safe Neighborhoods Act

Support Our Law Enforcement and Safe Neighborhoods ActThe Arizona SB 1070 is labeled as the "Support Our Law Enforcement and Safe Neighborhoods Act." The act is a controversial legislative act that was passed by Arizona that represents the broadest and harshest stance on immigration measures in the United States. 
United States Federal law requires that illegal immigrants register with the United States Government and to possess formal documentation in their possession at all times. The Arizona SB 1070 places a misdemeanor charge on those immigrants who fail to carry the required documents, and further bars state or local officials from restricting enforcement of federal immigration laws.  
The Arizona SB 1070 drew national publicity and criticism because to initiate the presence of documentation a law enforcement officer can in essence, racially profile those that appear to be illegal immigrants. As a result of this stipulation, the Arizona SB 1070 is often chastised for its aggressive and discriminatory practices.
