United against an anti-immigrant ballot measure
Fear is not a healthy environment—and hate is not an environmental solution.
An anti-immigrant group in Oregon was able to gather enough signatures to qualify Measure 105 for Oregon’s November ballot last week. The group has been preying on fears of water scarcity, pollution and global warming to promote anti-immigrant actions like this one.
Measure 105 would overturn Oregon’s sanctuary law that has worked for 30 years. It would divert police and taxpayer dollars for the police away from community safety, including environmental safety. It would direct police to stop and detain Oregonians, even without suspicion of a crime, if someone thinks they might be an undocumented immigrant.
From the beginning, Oregon Environmental Council has fostered healthy environments for healthy communities. We cannot have one without the other. We are proud to stand with One Oregon and Oregonians United Against Profiling to defeat Measure 105.
