Unfortunately HB452, the bill creating a public registry of non-citizens/legal residents; ostensibly to facilitate their detention and deportation, was signed by the Governor yesterday.

Please call Governor Deal at 404 656 1776 and state…..Please tell Governor Deal I am very disappointed in his signing of the discriminatory anti-immigrant HB452.

After calling send an email to Governor Deal using the drop down topic of “Immigration”. Also feel free to leave blank or add your organization and relationship to organization. And do not click the button declining a response. If you get a response feel free to add it to the comments on this page.

Governor Deal,

I am very disappointed in your signing of the anti-immigrant HB452 yesterday.

HB452, goes to great lengths to ensure Georgia is viewed as an unwelcoming state and is intended to ensure that communities, including local law enforcement, are provoked into remaining vocally opposed to our undocumented families so they remain in consistent fear. Providing personal information, including the home address, on entire undocumented households because one member was released from detention, is a tool clearly designed to institute fear into communities and encourage harassment.

I welcome all newcomers, including refugees and immigrants, to Georgia and to my community and expect the Governor to reflect those same ideals.

Thank You,

Your Name
