Tell Kentucky House Legislators To Stop Anti-Immigrant Bill

Kentucky is enroute to becoming the next Arizona, ground zero for a battle over immigrant rights.

Passed by the Kentucky Senate, SB-6 would expand the state's authority to enforce federal immigration law. The bill is modeled on a controversial Arizona law, the enforcement of which was blocked last summer by a federal judge.  It includes provisions that authorize police to attempt to determine a person's immigration status if s/he is stopped for another reason, such as a traffic violation, and is suspected of being undocumented.

The Senate bill would also ban communities from adopting ordinances to limit immigration enforcement, create the offense of trespassing for those in the state without legal status and make it a crime for anyone to assist such a person in coming to live in the state.

The KY House reconvenes on February 1 and the House Local Government Committee will take up the measure. It's time to tell Kentucky that Arizona is not the standard and we must not tolerate such acts of political violence against our communities.

After signing the petition, call the toll free legislative message line at 1-800-372-7181 and leave a message for House Speaker Greg Stumbo and your representatives.
