As you may already know, the Supreme Court will soon issue its decision on the constitutionality of Arizona’s draconian anti-immigrant law, S.B. 1070. (For more information on S.B. 1070, please click here; the ruling is expected to come down this month, but we do not yet know the exact timing). The statements we signed are in collaboration with the Center for American Progress and Lambda Legal (with help from Immigration Equality and the National Council of La Raza) they will be released following announcement of the Supreme Court’s decision (one statement is for a positive ruling; the other for a negative outcome).

Our work for LGBT equality relies on strong allies. In order to build and maintain relationships with allies, we must also be good allies. Signing these statements provided a great opportunity to show our support for our allies in the immigrant rights movement and the thousands of LGBTQ immigrants in this country.
