Call on Lt. Governor Casey Cagle to Stop Georgia's Anti-Immigrant Bill -- 2 DAY PUSH!

    1. Petition by

      NATIONAL DAY LABORER ORGANIZING NETWORK

Thank you for standing up for dignity and against Arizona-style, anti-immigrant legislation in Georgia. We have already delivered thousands of signatures to Georgia's Governor to veto this terrible bill, HB 87. Now, let's keep the pressure on during the last 2 days of the Georgia legislative session!

Georgia lawmakers only have until midnight Thursday to wrap things up, so there's still a chance we can block the bill before it lands on the Governor's desk. Let's urge Lieutenant Governor Casey Cagle to use his influence to help us stop this bill. Should HB 87 go to what's called "conference committee," Lt. Governor Cagle will play a key role in appointing the committee members who will determine the bill's fate. 

Please sign the petition to send a letter directly to Lt. Governor Cagle's office, asking him to use his power to help stop HB 87  -- we can't afford this kind of legislation in Georgia!  

Once you have signed the petition, please call his office at (404) 656-5030, and say:

"I urge Lieutenant Governor Cagle to use his power to stop HB 87. If it passes, Georgia could face a nation-wide boycott and even lose its reputation as a welcoming state. Georgia can't afford this! Thank you."

      Please do not allow HB 87 to pass in our Georgia legislature. The punishment inflicted by this bill will have a punitive effect on our state's economy and out citizen's.

      We have benefited from having several films made in our state. Such punitive legislation could well lead to a boycott of many film makers who find such legislation to be prejudicial in nature.

      Dear Governor of Georgia:

      “This is not right. Please remember the many people that have come here and have contributed to build the economy of this state. I’m referring to the many good neighbors. They work as hard as they can and perform task and dirty work that many native people are not willing to do even if that's the only job in the world for them!

      Churches are doing a hard job to reach everyone and impact their lives not only for them to love and serve God but also to be better human being, better parents, better co-workers, better Americans... What happen with “in God we Trust”? I'm very surprise knowing that this is a state in the Bible belt and is copying such an anti-human rights law... By the way, who is the real owner of this land? The one and only owner is still God the Creator of the world!

      Please go back to your roots… to what make this a strong nation blessed by God the Almighty. Was not USA formed by immigrants in the first place? What would Jesus do? I know you still have the values and can come up with a better and more creative plan.

      I’m asking God to give you wisdom and that he will speak to your heart. Today, I'm praying for you.

      Respectfully,

      Carmen Delgado”
