The following two programs are the protection measures President Obama has put in place to minimize the impact of Racial Profiling attacks against Latinos in Arizona:
1. End 287g Program: The Obama administration said Monday it is suspending existing agreements with Arizona police over enforcement of federal immigration laws, and said it has issued a directive telling federal authorities to decline many of the calls reporting illegal immigrants that the Homeland Security Department may get from Arizona police. Administration officials, speaking on condition they not be named, told reporters they expect to see an increase in the number of calls they get from Arizona police — but that won’t change President Obama’s decision to limit whom the government actually tries to detain and deport.
2. Racial Profiling Hotline: The Justice Department has set up a hotline for the public to report potential civil rights concerns regarding the Arizona law that requires police to check the immigration status of those they stop for other reasons. The hotline phone number is 1-855-353-1010. The email is: SB1070(at)usdoj.gov.
Latinos, IF YOU ARE STOPPED BY POLICE IN ARIZONA, for any reason, and YOU BELIEVE YOU WERE RACIALLY PROFILED, be polite to police, but get their name and call this hotline and report them.
