Petitioning The Governor of FL

Sign the petition asking for real solutions in Florida, not more immigrant bashing.

Florida is about to head down Arizona’s failed path. We have to fight back. Our state representatives want to make Florida the new Arizona. Bills pending in the legislature right now would turn Florida into a “show me your papers” state, encourage police to engage in racial profiling, take police resources out of our communities and turn them into immigration agents, and force the costly and ineffective E-Verify on Florida businesses.

These approaches aren’t working in Arizona and are costing the state millions in lost revenue, lawsuits, and bad publicity. Florida is already deep in debt, and we can’t afford these failed approaches. Florida needs real solutions to combat our $3 billion debt, not more stress on our already overburdened system.

On Monday April 4th, the Senate Judiciary Committee will be voting on SB 2040, one of many Arizona copycat bills.

Tell the state Senate we can’t afford their anti-immigrant bills. It’s time for Florida’s elected officials to show real leadership on this issue, not to fall back on tired and failed approaches

Letter to
The Governor of FL
We as Floridians are concerned by the recent spate of anti-immigrant bills being proposed in the Florida legislature. Among those bills is SB 2040, filed by Senator Anitere Flores, chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

SB 2040 is just another Arizona copy cat - it isn't working there, and it won't work here. We need real solutions for all Floridians.

Bills pending in the legislature right now would turn Florida into a “show me your papers” state, encourage police to engage in racial profiling, take police resources out of our communities and turn them into immigration agents, and force the costly and ineffective E-Verify on Florida businesses.

These sorts of anti-immigrant bills are failing all around the country, and we need to defeat them here in Florida as well! We encourage you to do the right thing and block SB 2040 and all other anti-immigrant bills from coming into law.

Thank you,
