Dear Dan,

Georgia just became the next state to follow Arizona’s wrong direction by passing a copycat of SB 1070. Yesterday, the legislature voted to turn Georgia into a “show me your papers” racial profiling state.

sign here to tell the governor to veto

The bill tells police to investigate immigration status during routine “stops” and ropes employers into the flawed E-Verify database.

We know from our experience in Arizona that these policies only result in fear and division.

Last week, several national organizations including NDLON notified the governor that passage of such laws may lead to a boycott of his state.

Governor Deal now has 40 days to decide whether to sign or veto the bill.

If you have not signed already, please sign the petition to tell him that Arizona-style laws are the wrong direction for Georgia, veto HB 87.

We will send more news shortly on how to support the people on the ground. Please sign the petition at http://bit.ly/vetohb87 and spread the word.

Thank you,

Marisa Franco, NDLON

    How foolish can you be? Do you have any clue what it costs us to provide all of their rediculous “entitlements?” As if we haven’t already spent money that we don’t have, and we are going to bury ourselves deeper by helping those who have no inherent right to any benefits. Enough already with this “politically correct” b.s. Tell people what they NEED to hear, not what they WANT to hear. Life is not fair, it never has been and never will be. We cannot afford to support any more people, we are actually way past that point already. I’m a two time combat veteran and have seen third world countries first hand. We are headed that way unless a LOT of people get their heads screwed on straight.
