Religious leaders denounce 1070

Posted: Updated:

Members of Tucson's faith community call Senate Bill 1070 an 'unjust' and 'sinful' law.

That was the message Wednesday at the Southside Presbyterian Church. Where more than 30 religious leaders from different denominations gathered today to denounce the bill. They hope political leaders listen to their message.

So that's one of the things that we're calling them to do is to repent from this great sin and realize that this is an unjust law, unconstitutional, and we will do whatever we can to defeat it and make sure it does not go into effect," says Rev. Alison Harrington.

The religious leaders say they will not comply with the law if it does go into effect.
