Oppose Arizona-like anti-immigrant bill

The anti-immigrant bill being circulated by state Rep. Donald Pridemore "is a copycat version of Arizona bill 1070, the infamous law that targets immigrant populations. The bill was passed last July, but it has not been enacted yet because of several suits brought against it by the federal government, civil rights organizations and individual Latinos," WNPJ Board member Stefania Sani writes in a letter published by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

 

Sani rejects the bill as "divisive, exclusionary and regressive," adding, "This land of immigrants prospered with the input and hard work of people who moved here in search of a better life. Let's face it; that process is still going on."
