According to some sources, the laws in Arizona that were set up by SB1070 are based around fear. They were designed to make immigrants feel afraid so that they would go somewhere else. These sources also indicated that this has happened, saying that some who came to Arizona have now decided to leave the state.
By now, a lot of people in Arizona have seen stories of people seeking asylum. Some people might be wondering exactly what this refers to. Asylum refers to a special form of protection afforded to someone who has fled from their country because of fear of persecution. In order for someone who comes to the United States to get asylum here, they must apply for it.
