Action Alert: Contact Gov. Snyder’s office in solidarity with immigrants

November 20, 2012

Nearly, two weeks ago, we were in Lansing for a pro-immigration rally, where people confronted the state government on its policy of not offering drivers licenses some immigrants.

Someone from Governor Snyder’s office agreed to meet with a delegation this Wednesday to hear their stories and talk about the anti-immigration policy.

In Today’s Detroit Free Press Governor Snyder’s office is quoted in a article stating the following:

Snyder agrees with Johnson’s decision, spokeswoman Sara Wurfel said.”Both U.S. Customs and Immigration Services and Homeland Security have made it clear that ‘deferred action’ is not legal status,” Wurfel said. And, she said, decisions on licenses are “under the purview and jurisdiction of the SOS” since the secretary is a “separate statewide elected constitutional officer.”

Tomorrow a coalition of organizations will be meeting with Gov. Snyder’s Chief of Staff and there is at least one busload from Grand Rapids to support that delegation.

Groups like One Michigan are asking people to call Snyder’s office and let him know now that Ruth Johnson’s policy is not how you welcome immigrants!

CALL 1-877-677-2122

Justice for Immigrants!
