US mayors passed resolution opposing Arizona immigration law
Kyle Webster at 12:00 AM ET

On June 14, 2010, the US Conference of Mayors passed a resolution opposing SB 1070, the controversial Arizona immigration law, and supporting federal immigration reform. The organization, which represents thousands of cities larger than 30,000 people, passed the resolution at the annual meeting of the organization in Oklahoma City with a voice vote of at least two-thirds of the over 200 mayors in attendance. The resolution called the Arizona law unconstitutional and was submitted by four mayors, including the mayor of Phoenix. The Arizona law was challenged by the Department of Justice (DOJ) and partially overturned by the US Supreme Court in Arizona v. US.
