A coalition of community organizations is holding an emergency vigil and protest after Arizona Governor Jan Brewer signed into law the most extreme anti-immigrant legislation in the country (SB-1070) on Friday. This disgusting bill legalizes racial profiling, and mandates local law enforcement to check proof of citizenship of anyone they encounter.
10 other states are currently considering similar legislation
We will gather to protest a fundraising event for local religious right outfit the Minnesota Family Council attended by national level republican politicians Mike Huckabee and Governor Tim Pawlenty, who have a long track record of anti immigrant sentiment, to send a strong message to the politicians of Minnesota, and the United States.
WHEN: Monday April 26th 5:00PM
WHERE: The Hilton Hotel 1001 Marquette Ave. S
Join us to say:
• NO to SB1070 and racist laws!
• Boycott Arizona until SB1070 is repealed!
• END racist anti-immigrant policies that unfairly target immigrant workers and families, including 287G!
• Just immigration reform that includes legalization and equal rights for all immigrants NOW!
