Governor Bryant’s hateful anti-immigrant speech shows his racist attitudes as he tries to stop children from reuniting with their families in Mississippi while awaiting immigration hearings. MIRA knows that his supporters and other cronies will buy into the misinformation motivated by fear and hatred that drive ridiculous stories of diseased terrorist gang members taking over our borders. MIRA knows the desperate children fleeing to our borders need our compassion and our support. We cannot allow our state to go backwards on the issue of immigrants’ rights. As recently as 2012, Mississippi State Rep. Becky Currie tried to pass a law that would prohibit undocumented children from attending school. We defeated this and many other hate-filled bills in 2012, 2013, and 2014, but we must prepare ourselves for an increase in anti-immigration sentiment fueled by Bryant’s xenophobia in the next legislative session. A donation to MIRA will allow us to mobilize immigrants all over the state of to fight for their rights.
