Unity Rally and Prayer Vigils to oppose the Anti-Immigrant Law, S.B. 20, Dec 18 and 19

The U.S. Department of Justice and several civil and human rights organizations are challenging the constitutionality of South Carolina’s anti-immigrant law, SB 20 in U.S. District Court in Charleston.  SB 20, signed into law in June, encourages racial profiling by allowing law enforcement to investigate the immigration status of anyone they pull over whom they suspect may be in the state illegally.  For info: http://www.sc-coalition.org/home
