Sanctuary Movement Spreads East

by Jesse Diaz Saturday, Mar. 04, 2006 at 4:42 PM

Please attend the Pomona council meeting Monday night, and or pass the this information along to anyone and everyone that may be affected, including clergy, law enforcement, teachers, mailmen, storeowners, bus drivers, clerks, phone operators, etc.

MEDIA ADVISORY From: Coalition for Safety and Well Being Contacts: Gustavo Ramirez (909-519-3233) Jose Calderon (909-952-1640) On Monday, March 6th, at 6:30 P. M., the City of Pomona’s Coalition for Safety and Well Being will support a resolution before the Pomona City Council to oppose Congressional Bill HR 4437. This bill, which has already passed the House of Representatives, is now in the Senate’s Judiciary Committee. This bill, if passed, classifies the eleven million undocumented immigrants working in the U.S. as “aggravated felons” and subjects them to deportation and imprisonment and deprives them of any access to a hearing prior to deportation. It places religious groups, employers, and private citizens at risk of criminal prosecution for aiding undocumented immigrants. It eliminates birthright citizenship for babies born in the U.S. to undocumented immigrants. Finally, it encourages local law enforcement to enforce immigration laws. The coalition believes this bill to be an endangerment and infringement of the safety and well being of Pomona’s residents. Opposing the Bill would secure the continual unity and appreciation of Pomona’s rich cultural diversity. Opposing the Bill would secure the continual respect for the Human and Civil Rights of Pomona’s residents. Opposing the Bill would secure that Pomona’s youth and children continue to thrive in an environment that entitles them to a life of liberty and a pursuit of happiness. The coalition sees this bill as part of a growing trend to blame immigrants for the economic problems in the country. Various studies have shown that immigrant workers contribute more than they take out of the economy. The coalition is united in stopping this bill and supporting efforts to legalize immigrant workers and to support their human rights. The coalition, which includes dozens of church, union, student, immigrant rights, and community groups, will rally outside the city hall before presenting a petition and resolution urging the city council to oppose the bill.
