Today 7 people were arrested outside of the court house in an act of civil disobedience. his week in Phoenix a federal judge is hearing arguments from immigrant and civil rights groups, the Department of Justice and the State of Arizona over whether or not SB 1070 should be implemented on July 29.
While immigrant rights groups wait on a ruling from Judge Bolton about whether or not the law will go into effect, they are preparing locals, especially citizens, to not comply with SB 1070. The groups will ask people not to carry their ID's when they are out and about, and record their interactions with the police. The Alto!Arizona website urges people: "Don't work! Don't buy! Don't comply!"
