UJP Activist: Keep Hate Out of Our State! Say NO to S.2061!








KEEP HATE OUT OF OUR STATE! SAY NO TO S.2061!
============================================================

S.2061 is a bill currently under review in the Massachusetts State House that
seeks to criminalize immigrants in our state and deny essential services to
hardworking, taxpaying families. The bill's lead sponsor, Sen. Richard Moore,
calls the bill an "Act to Enhance Community Safety." This title hides the truth
of the devastating impact S.2061 will have on our communities.

The bill will:

Undermine community safety and legalize racial profiling

Criminalize workers' and their families

Ban families from accessing public housing

Deny equal access to higher education

Massachusetts is not Arizona or Alabama.  We cannot let this anti-immigrant,
anti-worker bill pass.
