ABSTRACT
The article discusses the rise of the human rights movement in Arizona to protest against the state's 2010 immigration law SB 1070. The law includes provisions that force migrants to self-deport and allow police officers to perform racial profiling when checking the immigration status of people. According to the author, SB 1070 arose from racism, hate and a corporate profit motive. The creation of peaceful networks called Barrio Defense Committees to fight against deportation is also tackled.
