11/9: Immigrant Rights Watch - Immigrant Rights Are Under Siege!

Immigrant Right Watch: A Project of ActionLA & PeaceNoWar
The immigrant's special registration program is coming again to the
neighbours near you!
Immigrants and immigrant rights advocates need everyone help for the upcoming
racist registration, and to defeat the proposed The CLEAR Act ("Clear Law
Enforcement For Criminal Alien Removal" Act, HR 2671) would require state and
local law enforcement agencies to enforce federal civil immigration laws in order
to receive certain federal funding. Passage of this bill would undermine
civil liberties, civil rights, and safety in our communities. It would overburden
state and local police, foster ethnic and cultural profiling, impede the
public safety function of local police, and blur the lines between criminal, civil,
and administrative immigration violations.
Stand Up! Get Up! Gight for your Rights!
