Dear Governor Kaine,
Like you, I have watched with dismay at the disastrous results of the draconian and misguided Arizona anti-immigrant law.
I believe it prudent for the Democratic National Committee to remove Phoenix, Arizona from the list of cities eligible to be awarded the 2012 DNC national convention unless and until this law is overturned. As the Party committed to rewarding hard work, respecting and celebrating diversity and ensuring equality under law, it is the least that Democrats can do.
President Obama has said that Arizona’s anti-immigrant law threatens to “undermine basic notions of fairness that we cherish as Americans, as well as the trust between police and their communities that is so crucial to keeping us safe.”
I urge you to communicate my request with the site committee and take the necessary steps to disqualify Phoenix as a potential host city for the 2012 Democratic National Convention unless and until the Arizona law is repealed.
Peace and Friendship,
