Statement by Sen. Rick Murphy on U.S. Supreme Court SB 1070 Ruling

Senator Murphy

“I’m pleased, and not surprised, that the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the core component of SB1070.  The ruling honors state sovereignty and, by extension, the right of citizens to pass laws to protect themselves.  Claims that SB1070 will cause racial profiling are fear-mongering at its worst.  Properly implemented, SB1070 will strike the right balance between protecting citizens and the rights of suspects.  I look forward to seeing experience prove the naysayers wrong.”
