Arizona’s Anti-Immigrant Law Hits Women the Hardest

Arcelia Hurtado writes on the Huffington Post: “Rosa B. was raped at work today. Arizona’s anti-immigrant law would also send her to jail if she reports it. . . . The debate over SB 1070, the Arizona bill signed into law by Governor Brewer, has centered on the race-based anti-immigrant sentiment it will foster. An equally important, and gender-based dynamic, is that the law will disproportionately impact Latinas in Arizona due to their comparatively vulnerable economic status.”
