Thank President Obama For Filing Suit Against Arizona's "Show Me Your Papers" Law

Supporters

The Obama Administration just filed suit against the state of Arizona for its racially charged SB1070 law, the most anti-immigrant and anti-civil rights law in the country. The law provides local law enforcement the power to question people who simply look "illegal," a clear violation of civil liberties. The law goes into effect on July 29th.

Please sign the petition to thank President Obama and the Department of Justice for suing Arizona to stop this law, and urge him to keep up the pressure and follow through on their injunction to prevent the law from going into effect on July 29th until this lawsuit and the American people have had their day in federal court, as well as continue pushing for a real solution - comprehensive immigration reform.

Letter to
Attorney General of the United States Eric Holder
Your administration just filed suit against the state of Arizona for its racially charged SB1070 law, the most anti-immigrant and anti-civil rights law in the country. The law provides local law enforcement the power to question people who simply look “illegal,” a clear violation of civil liberties. The law goes into effect on July 29th.

Thank you for taking this bold action, and for pushing for comprehensive immigration reform. I am behind you 100%, and I pledge to do all I can to make sure this law never goes into effect. I urge you and the Justice Department to keep up the pressure and follow through on your injunction to prevent the law from going into effect on July 29th until this lawsuit and the American people have had their day in federal court. I also urge you to push forward with comprehensive immigration reform, to make sure laws like this don't spread to the rest of the country.

It's crucial nobody's civil rights are ever trampled due to this misguided law or laws like it.

Again, thank you.
