June 25, 2012 - As protesters in Arizona were reacting to the U.S. Supreme Court ruling on Arizona's immigration SB 1070's law, they received with surprise the announcement that the Obama Administration was suspending the 287g immigration policy in Arizona. Carlos Garcia, director of the Phoenix-based Puente Arizona immigrant rights group, told reporters that President Obama's cancellation of the 287 (g) immigration policy in Arizona was predictable, since ICE has now the Secure Communities program. Immigrant rights groups protested the United States Supreme Court ruling on Arizona law for upholding SB 1070's provision that will allow police to demand papers if there's reasonable suspicion that a person may be illegally in the country.
