David Harris in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Discussing the Arizona Immigration Law at a Forum in Pittsburgh
Professor David Harris was the featured speaker at a forum in Pittsburgh on the new Arizona immigration law, and the copycat bill introduced in the Pennsylvania legislature this week. Harris explained the main components of the law and why it would inevitably lead to racial profiling and a breakdown in the ability of local police to control crime.
“Every country has immigration laws and every nation has the right to control its borders,” Harris said. “But that’s a federal job….The country needs to solve this problem. Arizona and Pennsylvania do not solve this problem alone.”
