PHOENIX (AP) – Hispanic-rights leaders say they’re targeting locals and tourists alike with a billboard warning of Arizona’s new immigration law.
The billboard cautions: “Have your papers ready – Racial profiling just ahead.”
The group behind the billboard in central Phoenix is Culver City, Calif.-based Brave New Foundation. The groups says it paid for the outdoor advertisement through donations to the Facebook page of a group called Cuentame (CWEHN’-tah-may).
Cuentame is an online immigration forum that has focused on Arizona’s new law, known as SB1070.
The billboard should be up for the next few weeks.
Earlier this year, Brave New Foundation posted an online video in which a Phoenix police officer said the law would make him feel like a Nazi. Officer Paul Dobson was then placed under internal investigation and is expected to face some type of minor discipline.
