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."
