      • Mallika Dutt: The "war on women" is bigger than you thin

        As the Supreme Court considers key elements of Arizona's SB 1070 law, which legalizes racial profiling of and blatant discrimination against immigrant communities and people of color, stories from around the country show that this and other laws like it, such as Alabama's H.B. 56. are causing intense damage to families, communities and economies, with devastating consequences for immigrant women. These laws leave parents unable to protect their children. They force women to choose between the threat of an abusive husband and the threat of deportation if they call the police. They send pregnant mothers to give birth in shackles with federal agents by their side. As part of a delegation to Birmingham, Alabama with the We Belong Together campaign, Breakthrough president Mallika Dutt connects the dots between Arizona's SB 1070 law, copycat state laws that followed it in states such as Georgia and Alabama, and the "war on women." The war on immigrants and the escalating "war on women" are part of one sweeping crusade against the fundamental rights of all women living in the United States, documented and otherwise. So as the Supreme Court hears this challenge, it's time for us to protect the true American values of diversity and democracy, dignity and respect. It's time for those of us outraged by women's human rights violations across borders and oceans to support women's human rights at home. We're here to stand up for the rights of all women in the United States. Are you? Tweet this: I'm here to support the human rights of all women in the United States. Are you? #immigration #waronwomen
