Two days after the Arizona State Senate passed Senate Bill 1070 - The Support Our Law Enforcement and Safe Neighborhoods Act, more commonly known as Arizona SB 1070, Rabago issued a statement blasting the measure and urging Republican Governor Jan Brewer to veto it. In addition to the measure failing to do anything to help secure the border, the State Attorney General candidate argued the legislation "scapegoats significant segments of our population and targets them for racial profiling." [2]

On Friday, April 23, 2010, SB 1070 received the signature of Governor Brewer and became state law; the measure is scheduled to go into effect on Wednesday, July 28. And in spite of criticisms against the measure, Rabago, along with his two other Democratic opponents in the attorney general primary contest, vowed that if elected to be the state's top attorney, they would enforce it nonetheless.
