Activist alert: The immigration bill we mobilized against has been passed and is now in conference before being submitted to the president, but the underlying issue of access to public aid -- and the stereotype that some immigrants are more deserving than others -- remains very much alive. SAWA continues to be concerned about the punitive measures against illegal immigrants and legal immigrants in need of public assistance. We urge you to find out more about the legislation and its intended effects and ACT NOW to fight it by sending a letter to the President urging him to oppose it. We welcome material, suggestions, and strategies to counter this unfair legislation.
Write to us with your reactions, comments, and suggestions at [[CONTACT PAGE]]. If you would like to become involved with SAWA, our meetings are on the second Tuesday evening of every month. Write us for information about time and place.
