Tell Congress: No Racial Profiling in America

    1. Sponsored by

      Reform Immigration for America

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer signed the harshest anti-immigrant law in the nation on April 23rd. It gives police sweeping powers to stop anyone whom they "reasonably suspect" to be in the U.S. illegally, and they can choose people based on their race or ethnicity.

President Obama himself called Arizona's draconian law a threat that will "undermine basic notions of fairness that we cherish as Americans, as well as the trust between police and their communities that is so crucial to keeping us safe."

Some families in Arizona now fear leaving their homes, even though they are legal American citizens. We desperately need leadership at the federal level to head off irresponsible laws like Arizona's.

Call on Congress to overhaul an immigration system that is unfair and failing all of us.
