NEXT STEP!! Your Testimony is Needed Again!!
Must be done before FRIDAY, FEB 8!
Hawai‘i Senate Judiciary + Public Safety Committees will be hearing testimony - and deciding on whether to pass - the Ho‘okipa (State Sanctuary) Bill SB557 on Friday, February 8.
Even just clicking SUPPORT will help. Sometimes it is just a numbers game.
1. My name is _______. I am testifying in strong support of Senate Bill 557 (SB557) - the Ho'okipa Bill.
2. My name is _______. Undocumented immigrant are our families and our neighbors. They are contributing members to our society. Trump's executive order making local police function as ICE agents is brutal and divisive. It also makes all of us less safe because undocumented immigrants and their US families won't report crimes if they believe it runs the risk of deportation. Local police should be able to protect our communities, not act as federal agents. If someone is breaking into my home, I would like my neighbors to feel safe to call the police. I wholeheartedly support SB557 and urge you to do the same.
