TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

It was four years ago today that Governor Brewer signed SB1070 into law and now the American Civil Liberties Union is asking her to stop defending the controversial immigration law. 

The group has just launched a webpage, where people can email Governor Brewer asking her to back away from the controversial immigration law. 

The ACLU site states that although much of SB1070 has been found unconstitutional, the 'show me your papers' provision is still being enforced in communities across Arizona.  And that law enforcement officers are using their own biases, like skin color or manner of speaking as a reason to stop people.

A portion of the email message refers to Brewer vetoing the bill that gave defense to businesses to turn away gay patrons it says "It's time now for you to follow your own advice, live out your words and stop defending SB1070."
