Pablo Alvarado, Executive Director, National Day Laborer Organizing Network, states, "The eyes of the world are watching and President Obama must act. SB1070 is where we draw the line and say enough is enough. Enough of a disastrous and dangerous ‘enforcement first' strategy to immigration reform. Enough to the criminalization of workers and families. We will escalate our struggle until the President acts concretely to stop the implementation of SB1070 and modernize the immigration laws to match the values of our nation."
