Save Our Communities!

I am writing to ask you to send an email, or speak at Citizens Time, 2:00 p.m. April 29th and to recruit others to do the same. This is our last chance so please take this opportunity seriously.

The emails I'd like you to send are intended for our elected officials in Prince William County, VA. This coming Tuesday, April 29th, our Board of Supervisors will be voting on whether to continue funding a policy that spends nearly $26 million over 5 years to enlist local police in enforcing immigration law using a "probable cause" standard that is certain to lead to racial profiling.

We have a segment of the population including legal citizens that are living in fear of undue scrutiny by local law enforcement. We don't want our taxes raised and we can not afford to defend ourselves against additional lawsuits that are inevitably to follow. Additionally, the "Immigration Resolution" is ravaging our local economy as this video shows: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2oiwJ-_BipU

Public officials here are greatly influenced by emails. They are being inundated with emails from around the country, organized by two anti-immigrant lobbying organizations based in Washington DC, both categorized as "Hate Groups" by the Southern Poverty Law Center and the Anti-Defamation League. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pBbjrk0QWqw

We are asking you to counter the efforts of anti-immigrant lobbying groups like FAIR and NumbersUSA, and write emails to our Supervisors.

Please visit http://www.pwcaa.com/ to automatically send emails to all Supervisors.

Thanks.
