Call to Action: Immigration in MA, tell legislators and the governor to support ‘The Safe Communities Act’

Contact the chairs of the Joint Committee on Public Safety and Homeland Security, the bill is sitting in this committee and will get nowhere if they don’t vote it out of committee and move it to the floor for a vote- DEADLINE Feb 7.
