Tell the Springfield City Council to let the voters decide!
A petition backed by the Minutemen, a nationally recognized hate group, has been offered in the City of Springfield that would require every business in the city limits to participate in the federal E-Verify program. We know from other localities where this has passed that mandating use of this flawed, expensive system results not only in excessive expense for small businesses and cities, but in racial tensions and discrimination within the community.
Next Tuesday, the City Council can vote to either make this discriminatory measure law, or to put it on the ballot for the voters. Tell the Springfield City Council to let the voters decide! Together, we must defeat the Minutemen and make Springfield and our state a more welcoming and respectful place!
Your email will go to the Mayor of Springfield and the entire City Council.
