Protests Against Immigration Bill

All sorts of demonstrations are going on around the country today, protesting against some of the immigration bills currently being debated in the Senate. Here in San Francisco, thousands have turned out to protest HR 4437, which would, among other things, make being an undocumented immigrant a felony, criminalize any sort of assistance to undocumented immigrants, and require local police officers to enforce immigration laws. (On the last provision, see Douglas McGray’s excellent piece on why hospital workers, police officers, and the like think that becoming immigration “deputies” would be disastrous.)

Anyway, Ed Homich took a few pictures from the local protest here in San Francisco; you can see them below the fold:

DEMOCRACY DOES NOT EXIST...

without free and fair elections, a vigorous free press, and engaged citizens to reclaim power from those who abuse it.

In this election year unlike any other—against a backdrop of a pandemic, an economic crisis, racial reckoning, and so much daily bluster—Mother Jones' journalism is driven by one simple question: Will America move closer to, or further from, justice and equity in the years to come?

If you're able to, please join us in this mission with a donation today. Our reporting right now is focused on voting rights and election security, corruption, disinformation, racial and gender equity, and the climate crisis. We can’t do it without the support of readers like you, and we need to give it everything we've got between now and November. Thank you.
