Charley James: Some days I wake up feeling alright, that things will get better; then, within hours, something happens to leave me feeling like my life will never turn around.
Hector Villagra: Monday’s decision shows that Arizona is a failed experiment. Most of this law – most of it has been struck down. And the piece that remains is obviously on life support. And it’s just a matter of time before that dies the death that it deserves.
Robert Fuller: People are no longer willing to be treated like nobodies; they’re demanding to be treated like somebodies. Once people stand up for their dignity, it’s not long before they’re marching for justice.
