Don’t stop now! We need to keep telling our legislators that we don’t believe in mandating cooperation with Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
Senate Bill 452 has already passed the Georgia senate. Last night, the house tried to fast-track it, passing it out of the rules committee and bringing it up for a vote on the floor when most people weren’t paying attention. Thanks to your emails, it’s been delayed until Thursday, March 29, the last day of this year’s assembly session, but we need to keep up the pressure.
This bill mandates that local law enforcement cooperate with Immigration and Customs Enforcement, increasing deportations, tearing apart families and making our communities less safe. It also prohibits cities and communities from addressing the unjust cash bail system, hurting the movement against money bail.
Usually, we ask you to call your representatives, but in this situation, email is more effective. Click here to email the entire house.
Here is an example script that you can build off of or use:
I’m writing to ask you to oppose Senate Bill 452. No kid should have to come home from school to find that their parent has been taken away, locked up and likely sent to another country. SB 452 would put more kids in this terrible situation, not to mention its direct impact on those detained and deported due to its provisions. Please vote NO and allow law enforcement to focus on keeping our families safe, rather than requiring them to put our families in greater danger with the risk of deportation.
Thank you for the chance to share my concerns.
Please email them TODAY.
TELL THEM: Stop requiring cooperation with ICE!
Thanks for caring,
