    Examples
    Dear Councilman _________:

    I am calling/writing today to ask you to please follow the lead of Hazelton, PA and pass strict immigration enforcement measures in Cherokee County as soon as possible. The federal government is not adequately securing our border or enforcing our existing immigration laws. I feel it is incumbent upon our states and cities to take action to protect communities from illegal immigration. Illegal immigration has many negative repercussions for our communities including depressed wages, increased health care costs, increased costs to taxpayers, increased crime, infectious diseases, and lost American jobs.

    I hope you will stand with the vast majority of Americans that want our laws enforced and our communities and tax dollars protected from illegal aliens.

    Please pass these ordinances as soon as possible. A majority of your constituents support this effort.

    Thank You,

    NOTE:
    It's best if we begin diversifying our letters when time permits. LEGAL & PINE are working on composing several more samples for us to use. If anyone has a letter that they'd like to add to the samples, we'd be glad to oblige ...post it and we'll add it to the thread that we're putting together.

    Suggestion:
    By adjusting the "sample" to sound more like your own words, the council members are more likely to take notice.

    Cherokee Co. holds hearing on rent fines for illegal immigrants


    Associated Press

    ATLANTA - Immigrant rights advocates are gearing up to fight a proposal to fine landlords who rent to illegal immigrants in Cherokee County.

    The proposal, which would require property owners to prove their tenants live in the country legally, will be the focus of a public hearing Tuesday night by the Cherokee County Board of Commissioners.

    The Georgia Association of Latino Elected Officials is asking its supporters to show up at Tuesday's hearing and speak out against the proposal.

    "We need to work to stop it here and ensure it would not spread to other parts of our state. Please do not stay silent as some people could be forced out of their homes during the holiday season," the group's president, Jerry Gonzalez, said in an e-mail.

    The Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund in Atlanta and the Coordinating Council of Latino Community Leaders, a Georgia immigrant rights group that has organized marches and rallies since March, are also meeting Monday night to discuss how to oppose the proposal.

    Under the proposed ordinance, landlords who didn't comply could be fined or lose their business licenses. They also couldn't collect rent while in violation.

    Georgia earlier this year approved a wide-ranging crackdown on illegal immigrants, and cities in Texas, California and Pennsylvania have enacted laws to punish landlords who rent to illegal immigrants.

    The Association County Commissioners of Georgia believes Cherokee County's proposal would be the first such ordinance in Georgia. The proposal is meant to send a message to immigrants that "it's not going to be so comfortable" to be in the country illegally, said Cherokee County Commissioner Derek Good.

    The Cherokee County ordinance would only cover unincorporated areas and would not apply to cities in the county just north of Atlanta.

    The hearing will be held at 6 p.m. Tuesday at the Justice Center in downtown Canton.

    Done! That was a short list compared to the Nashville one. Hope they pass it.

    Seems with all of these towns and cities jumping on the enforcement bandwagon, the ACLU must have SOOOOO much to do, I wonder if they have enough criminal lawyers to keep up with it all?
