Navajo Nation opposes Arizona immigration law

The Navajo Nation legislature voted to formally oppose Arizona’s tough new immigration law.

Council Delegate Kee Allen Begay sponsored the measure. He says he sees the immigration law as an attempt to harass American Indians, who can resemble Mexican nationals.

The tribal lawmakers also came out against a state measure that prohibits any school classes that advocate ethnic solidarity. Begay says the Navajo culture should be respected and protected.

  1. Thank you for this interesting post. There is a similar discussion going on in Europe to oppose the greek plan to build a 2000 km long fence in order to prevent more immigration from poorer countries in the east and south.
