I just received this E-mail from Gabe Gonzalez at Immigration For America:
This week, we’ve seen all too clearly what we’re up against. A law sitting on the governor’s desk in Arizona would make police stop anyone they “suspect of being undocumented.” More than that, it gives citizens the right to sue the police if they’re not stopping enough people.
If the governor signs this law, in Arizona you could be detained, legally, just for looking as though you could be an immigrant – in other words, for no reason at all. It’s racial profiling, and it encapsulates the hatred we’re fighting.
This is an “All hands on deck” moment for our movement! Arizona has shown that we cannot wait to pass comprehensive immigration reform, and that’s why we’re holding an emergency strategy call with one of our strongest allies, Congressman Luis Gutierrez, on Thursday, April 22, at 7:15 pm (Spanish language) and at 8:00 pm Eastern (English language), to brief you on the plan going forward into the marches in May.
Congressman Gutierrez will speak about the struggles we’ve faced, and what we can all do to make sure comprehensive immigration reform becomes the law. Congressman Gutierrez knows that we can’t wait any longer to fix our broken system, and he’ll tell us about the ways we’ll win this battle by standing together. I hope you can join him for this critical moment in time.
I have participated in one of these calls before and if this issue is important to you, I encourage you to sign up to participate in this one. It is really easy: Just go to the link below, sign up, and then on the day and time of the conference call, they will call you. You don’t have to do anything. Your phone will ring, you answer it, and then you will automatically be connected so just listen in. That’s all there is to it, so don’t feel at all intimidated.
