On behalf of the state of Mississippi, I would like to express my gratitude to those who have signed and shared this petition. Sadly, things have become worse for immigrants and those who love them. 10 anti-immigrant bills have been drafted and tomorrow, the Mississippi HB 488 (an exact copycat of Alabama's HB 56) will be discussed in the House of Representatives' Judiciary B Committee.
Please share this petition once more with your friends and call Rep. Becky Currie at (601 )833-5953. She is the main author of HB 488. You may also e-mail her at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please help spread the word about the Walk Against Fear 2012. Three immigrant youth (two of whom are openly undocumented) will walk from Memphis, TN to Jackson, MS beginning on March 11, 2012 in order to raise awareness about the racism that propagates inequality at all social levels and will to empower everyone to stand up and demand human rights.
What happens in Alabama stays in Alabama. Thank you.
