Can you imagine being pulled over because police think you look like an illegal immigrant? How does an illegal immigrant look anyway? These are the questions protesters at UC Berkeley were asking on Thursday regarding Arizonan’s new immigrant detention law. Bill 1070 gives authorities the right to detain people who they suspect are in the country illegally.
About 500 people gathered at UC Berkeley’s campus to show solidarity. They were also requesting UC Berkeley’s Chancellor Robert J. Birgeneau to make Cal a sanctuary campus.
