Support Our Law Enforcement and Safe Neighborhoods Act of 2010

The Support Our Law Enforcement and Safe Neighborhoods Act (Arizona Senate Bill 1070) is a legislative act signed into law by Arizona Governor Jan Brewer that is widely viewed as the most stringent anti-illegal immigration measure passed in decades. The Act has received national and international attention and has spurred considerable controversy.

The Arizona Act directs law enforcement officers who possess “reasonable suspicion” that an individual is unlawfully present to make reasonable attempts to determine the immigration status of that person and makes the unlawful presence of a foreign national a criminal offense.
