2/28 – ACTION ITEM: Call or Email: What Happens in Arizona, Must Stop in Arizona!

Please take 5 minutes TODAY for immigrant justice and human dignity.

Background:  The GA legislature has introduced several pieces of anti-immigrant legislation, including Arizona copy cat bills, HB 87 and SB 40.  Just this morning, the House Judiciary Non-Civil Committee passed HB 87 out of committee, which means a vote on the House Floor is imminent. HB 59—which would deny public higher education to undocumented students—is also going to the House floor soon for a vote. We need as many people to make calls, calls, and more calls, as well as emails, emails, and more emails, to ask our elected leaders to put an end to this scapegoating and immigrant bashing.

Please take 5 minutes to call and email the people below and urge them to do the right thing.  Our goal today and tomorrow is to get 1,000 calls and emails in.  Can you help us reach this goal?

Thank you for taking action…and stay tuned for more actions to come!

Contact the Governor, Lt Governor and House Speaker. They all hold a lot of influence in stopping these bills.

“I urge you to use your leadership as Governor of Georgia to secure a “No” Vote on the Arizona Copycat bills, HB 87, SB 40 and all other anti-immigrant legislation, including HB 59. These bills are making Georgia look bad in the eyes of the country and the world.  Any legislation that leads to racial profiling or pushes immigrant workers out of Georgia, will harm our state economically and morally.  What happens in Arizona must stop in Arizona.  As a Georgia resident, I urge you to stop these anti-immigrant bills and to commit to veto any such legislation that reaches your desk.  Can we count on your commitment to do so?”

House Speaker David Ralston

Email his Chief of Staff, Spiro Amburn: spiro.amburn@house.ga.gov
