LUCHA files lawsuit, vows to fight controversial HCR 2060, the Secure the Border Act

PHOENIX – On the steps of the Arizona Supreme Court, Living United for Change in Arizona filed a lawsuit challenging HCR 2060, known as the Secure the Border Act, claiming the resolution violated the single-subject rule. HCR 2060, a resolution that will bypass the governor and go to voters, would make crossing the border outside of points of entry a state crime, among other border and immigration provisions.

Alejandra Gomez, LUCHA executive director, says if HCR 2060 proceeds to the ballot in November, Arizona voters will be heard on Election Day. “While Republicans believe this will rally their base, I can assure you that a different story will be told on the day after the election,” Gomez says at a news conference in Phoenix, on June 5, 2024.
