The rhetoric of hate groups, nativists, and vigilantes -- once limited to the fringe of American politics -- has gained a strong foothold in the public debate. Their policy positions frame the country's political discourse, and their members have penetrated the mainstream media. In short, extremists are defining the debate on immigration, and the portrayal of Hispanic Americans, at every level. The latest example comes from the state of Arizona, whose Governor, Jan Brewer of Arizona signed a bill into law, giving local police the power to inquire about a person's immigration status if they suspect them to be an illegal immigrant, just based on "reasonable suspicion," and to make arrests if they are not carrying a valid driver's license or identity papers.

This law not only preempts the federal role in immigration regulation but encourages -- in no uncertain terms -- racial profiling. The National Council of La Raza (NCLR) believes strongly in the values of this nation, in pluralism, and in the ability of every American to share the rights and responsibilities of this great country.

This law undermines the fairness sought through our constitution. We also believe that racial profiling has detrimental consequences for both policymaking and America's ideals, undermining the strength and integrity of our country. NCLR is committed to protecting civil rights and integration strategies that help immigrants become fully participating and contributing Americans. We need your help!

Show your courage and urge your senators to stand up for immigration reform now! Share your Immigration StoryPlease, won't you consider making a contribution now to ensure that our vital work.
