What: NDLON and Puente
call on all people of conscience across the country to converge on
Arizona on May 29. Together we will march to Stop the Hate and demand
that Obama issue an executive order nullifying SB1070. STOP THE HATE!!!
Let Us Show The World That We Won’t Stand For Hateful Laws And Attacks On Immigrants And People Of Color.
The passage of SB 1070 by Governor Brewer sparked national outrage
catalyzing a movement for immigrant rights and lending a sense of
urgency to stop the hate and terrorizing of immigrants and people of
color in Arizona and across the nation. Puente (a human rights movement anchored in Phoenix) and NDLON
(National Day Laborers Organizing Network) is calling for all people of
conscience to converge on Arizona to Stop the hate on May 29th and
demand President Obama take action to nullify this hateful law.
We urge President Obama to:
the federal government's exclusive control over immigration law by
making clear that state and local police do not have the inherent
authority to enforce immigration law.
suspend and terminate all police-ICE partnerships, including 287(g)
agreements and the so-called 'Secure Communities Initiative."
- Direct the Department of Homeland Security to refuse to take custody of anyone charged with violating provisions of SB 1070.
