Arizonas legal battle just moved into high gear. With a federal district court in Phoenix blocking key provisions of Arizonas new immigration law from taking effect, the next step is clear: A federal appeals court and eventually the Supreme Court of the United States.

The Department of Justice is doing everything within its power to derail Arizonas law so the ACLJ is answering back, supporting the state of Arizona in its effort to protect its citizens and defend its borders something the federal government has failed to do. Were filing briefs representing Members of Congress and thousands of concerned Americans who understand that Arizona has a constitutional right to protect its citizens and defend its borders.
As the ACLJ prepares for a critical and lengthy appeals process, its more important than ever that you stand with us now and support Arizonas right to secure its borders. Read the form below carefully and declare your membership with the ACLJ by adding your name to our Committee to Defend Arizonas Borders.

Words can be powerful conduits for truth. But in politics, language can also serve to camouflage public harm under the gloss of an appealing label. Take, for example, the “Sanctuary City” movement. A host of cities have passed local rules under the guise of that attractive mantra, creating...
