    There is lots going on at the Georgia Legislature.  Please see below and get involved!

    The Georgia Legislature has assigned SB6 to the Public Safety Committee and it doesn’t appear to be moving quickly but YOUR VOICE is needed to ensure it does not.  The legislation seeks to deny access to driver’s licenses to those who qualify for DACA and DAPA under President Obama’s #ImmigrationAction.  The legislation also seeks to give permission to DMV to collect DNA samples.  See below for the call to action to ensure we can block this legislation.

    February 2, 2015

    Advocacy Alert
    Tomorrow, the U.S. Senate is expected to vote on the effort to eliminate #ImmigrationAction.  Analysts are saying they do not have enough votes to override a filibuster, so Pres. Obama’s #ImmigrationAction will stand.  Please call our U.S. Senators and ask them to vote for a clean DHS funding bill.  See below.

    Also, the Georgia Legislature has assigned SB6 to the Public Safety Committee.  The legislation seeks to deny access to driver’s licenses to those who qualify for DACA and DAPA under President Obama’s #ImmigrationAction.  The legislation also seeks to give permission to DMV to collect DNA samples.  See below for the call to action to ensure we can block this legislation.
