Rep. Mike Honda on Arizona’s Anti-Illegal Immigration Law

Representative Mike Honda recently wrote an op-ed piece on the Huffington Post on why Arizona SB1070 — the country’s strictest anti-illegal immigration law in decades — is relevant to Asians and Asian Americans:  “As a Japanese American who spent part of my childhood in an internment camp, I know all too well the effects of scapegoating and racial profiling. I suffered through what happens when governments pass policies based on fear and misguided attempts at law and order. […]  Congress must pass comprehensive immigration reform, and we must do it now to avoid a patchwork of state measures that do not fundamentally fix our country’s broken immigration system, and that will lead to profiling and discrimination in our communities.”
