Stop the Hate! NO to scr1007 = sb1070+

February 13 @ 7:30 am - 12:00 pm

TRUMP, GOV. DUCEY and AZ GOP are trying to use our community as a scapegoat to win their elections, BUT we say ENOUGH, STOP THE HATE!

For the last month community members and community institutions have been fighting against bills that promote hate and further straightness the harmful and racists law SB1070.

On Thursday – SCR1007 will be heard on the Judiciary committee at 8am. The sponsors of this bills want to send this referendum to the ballot box – despite the overwhelming harm that we have seen these kinds of policies have cause in our communities and our state’s economy.

If sent to the voters in November 2020, and if the bill passes – it will:

*Prohibit the state and any county, municipality or political subdivision from declaring itself a sanctuary jurisdiction that prohibits or restricts any law enforcement entity from either coordinating with any federal, state or local government entity to determine the immigration status of any individual or complying with a lawful notice, request or order by the U.S. DHS pursuant to the federal Immigration and Nationality Act.

BUT this bill is bigger and broader than prohibiting sanctuary cities, counties, etc. It applies to every political subdivision in the State of Arizona-school districts, healthcare districts, fire boards, everything.

FOR EXAMPLE:

– You could have a DACA recipient torn out of their classroom at Arizona State University.

– An undocumented 8th grader in Phoenix Union High School District could be abducted by ICE agents and deported.

– A cancer patient stricken in a hospital bed could be asked for papers before they can receive life saving treatment.

– This is not superlatives-these are real scenarios this bill enables. How does this make us more safe?
