Open Letter From ACLU

 Dear ACLU Supporter,


ACLU legal teams are preparing to challenge Arizona's extreme, new law. But we need you to take action, too.

Send a strong message to your state lawmaker and governor: What Happens in Arizona Stops in Arizona.

You may have heard about a bill in Arizona that was signed into law last Friday. This outrageous and unconstitutional racial profiling law is causing a national uproar—and for good reason.

If this law goes into effect, it will require every police officer in Arizona to ask people for their papers based only on some undefined "'reasonable suspicion"' that they are in the country unlawfully. To avoid arrest, citizens and non-citizens will effectively have to carry their "papers" at all times.

ACLU legal teams are preparing to challenge Arizona's extreme, new law. But we need you to take action, too.

Send a strong message to your state lawmaker and governor: What Happens in Arizona Stops in Arizona.

Only a vigorous rejection of this dangerous, un-American approach will prevent it from spreading to other states. There are numerous reports that state lawmakers elsewhere are already considering bills similar to that of Arizona’s.

Even if you think your elected representatives and governor are sympathetic on this issue, they need to hear from you that you will not tolerate a dangerous racial profiling law.

Arizona's new law sacrifices the civil liberties of millions of people living and working in Arizona, while doing nothing to address the real problems the state is facing. We must make sure this kind of law doesn’t spread to other states.

Tell your state representatives and governor: What Happens in Arizona Stops in Arizona.

If we want to stop Arizona's draconian, new law from becoming a blueprint for extremists across America, we have to stop it from spreading.

It's time to stand against this kind of extremism. Please take action today.

Sincerely,


Anthony D. Romero
Executive Director
ACLU

P.S. Rampant racial profiling is an affront to everything we value and believe in. Don't let it stand. Don't let it spread. Write your state representatives and governor right away
