Action Alert: Unite Arizona!

Action Alert: Unite Arizona!

“We are horrified," said LULAC National President Rosa Rosales. "This law opens the doors to racial profiling. It requires police officers, if they form a 'reasonable suspicion' that someone is an illegal immigrant, to determine the person’s immigration status.”

“We're seeing children who are trying to cross the border just to reconnect with their parents, and their family members and their lives are at risk,” said Rosales. “A strong immigration reform policy would help alleviate some of those challenges.”

Until Congress passes an immigration reform bill, states will continue to take matters into their own hands and communities and families will remain separated.

With your help, we can make sure this doesn't go any further and remind our Congressional leaders and the people of Arizona that this is not the way it is done in America. LULAC vows to boycott Arizona, but we need your help!

We ask organizations, civic, religious, labor, Latino organizations of color to refrain from using Arizona as a convention site.

Boycott the State of Arizona by vowing not to spend your vacation dollars in that state, whether that be by not engaging in tourism in Arizona, by not doing business within the state, or by not buying anything that comes from Arizona, (paying specific attention to corporations and businesses that support these mean spirited laws like SB1070, as well as, those supporting the likes of Sherrif Joe Arpaio and Senator Russell Pearce) until such a time that this law is overturned or ruled unconstitutional.

Tell President Obama and your Senators to take action on a Comprehensive Immigration Reform, now!

Please fill in your address so we can find your elected officials. We need to ask for your complete address because ZIP codes often cross electoral districts.
