Sensenbrenner law threatens basic human rights

From:

What's happening: 

The Sensenbrenner anti-immigrant law winding through Congress makes it a felony to be an immigrant without papers - ie on the same level as rapists and murderers - and allows for the indefinite detention of non-citizens. The legislation makes it a crime if YOU or any family member, teachers, doctors, social workers, nurses, employer, co-workers, or any individual or organization does not turn in immigrants without papers. And the legislation criminalizes day-labor centers, churches, health clinics and all others who serve, help or work with undocumented immigrants. (Note: On this last point, the legislation is akin to the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850, the federal law that fed the flames that became the Civil War).
