The Chinga la Polimigra Campaign is Puente’s campaign against the racial profiling of Phoenix residents by the Phoenix Police Department (PPD). Our campaign is fighting to end PPD’s immigration policy Operations Order 4.48, which functions as the implementation arm of Arizona’s anti-immigrant policy SB1070.
Report findings have shown that, against the mandate of their own 4.48 policy, Phoenix Police Department:
The Phoenix Police Department has failed to comply with their own Operations Order 4.48. The data shows that Phoenix Police officers continue to partake in racial profiling practices and operates as Poli-migra through Operation Order 4.48. Ending Operations Order 4.48 is a step in the direction towards repealing SB1070 and ending statewide racial profiling by police. Police officers are not immigration officers; they should not have the power to question the immigration status of Phoenix residents.
