Say Thanks to Senators who Opposed Senate Bill 1, the Family Separation Bill

TAKE ACTION NOW

Families belong together and all people in Kentucky should feel safe in their communities, regardless of their skin color or country of origin.

Senate Bill 1 ignored the humanity of Kentuckians and would have:

  • Forced many public employees to engage in federal immigration enforcement.
  • Weakened local law enforcement by putting victims and witnesses of crime at risk of being detained and deported if they report a crime.
  • Allowed state constitutional officers to formally challenge people or agencies they believe are not enforcing the law.
  • Created a system of fear, intimidation, and racial profiling against Kentuckians of color.
  • Exposed counties to costly lawsuits.

Your Message

Thank you for opposing Senate Bill 1! This bill ignored the humanity of fellow Kentuckians and would have:
• separated families
• forced public employees to engage in federal immigration enforcement
• created a system of fear, intimidation, and racial profiling against Kentuckians of color
• harmed our economy
• weakened local law enforcement
• exposed counties to costly lawsuits

Families separation is not a Kentucky value. Families belong together and all people in Kentucky should feel safe in their communities, regardless of their skin color or country of origin. I hope you will continue to make Kentucky a welcoming place for all people. I hope you, your family, and your staff are healthy, safe, and well.

Sincerely,
