Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer’s racist law, SB 1070, has ignited a firestorm of protests around the country at the very time when immigrants and their supporters are standing up for reform. In addition to SB 1070, which legalizes racial profiling and is aimed at all people of color in Arizona, the state has passed a bill, HB 2281, which bans ethnic studies from public classrooms. Other states are reportedly considering similar moves.

The new Massachusetts budget includes several anti-immigrant amendments, such as the elimination of a health care program serving 30,000 immigrants, though several other racist amendments passed by the state Senate were defeated after a series of protests.

These attacks come at a time when all people are suffering from the wave of budget cuts and mass unemployment that makes racism and anti-immigrant xenophobia so dangerous. 

It’s time for Brewer and the rest of the state governors to be met with the outrage felt by millions of immigrants and their supporters. 

Immigration must be on the agenda of the annual meeting of the National Governor’s Association—and our voices must be heard! 

Join us on Saturday, July 10 to demand:

* Repeal Arizona’s SB 1070 and HB 2281! 
* From AZ to MA: No to all anti-immigrant legislation! 
* No human being is illegal—Full rights for all!
* End all racial profiling and police brutality! Stop the raids and deportations now!
* Stop the budget cuts! Jobs, healthcare, education and housing—not war!
