Barbara Cogswell, 77, of Canyon Country, was among members of a Santa Clarita church held signs criticizing Arizona’s controversial illegal-immigration law at Valencia Boulevard and McBean Parkway, Santa Clara, Cal. on July 29.  She said she was concerned SB 1070 would create a culture where law enforcement questions a person’s legal status because of their skin color. She said racial profiling is a problem minorities in the United States have dealt with for years.  “This is not a place where we have to show our papers to show we belong here,” Cogswell said. “If you ask any person of color, they’ll tell you they’ve gotten tickets for driving while black, for driving while brown.”
