Obama on AZ Immigration Bill: It Could "Threaten to Undermine Basic Notions of Fairness That We Cherish as Americans"

Posted By on Fri, Apr 23, 2010 at 8:00 AM

President Barack Obama has spoken out against the immigration bill now on Gov. Jan Brewer's desk:

President Barack Obama on Thursday criticized a pending Arizona law that would make it a state crime to be in the United States illegally and require anyone suspected of being an illegal immigrant to produce identification.

Such legislation could "threaten to undermine basic notions of fairness that we cherish as Americans," the president said during a naturalization ceremony for members of the United States Armed Services.
