    “By claiming he will refuse Syrian refugees, AZ Gov. Doug Ducey is not only threatening to violate Federal law but also threatening the lives of the existing Syrian refugee population here in Arizona and all Muslims and Arabs. 

    Thanks to reactionary politicians like Ducey, Russell Pearce, and John Huppenthal and policies like HB 2281 and SB 1070, Arizona already has a climate of racism, hatred, and bigotry. This has provided the conditions for other forms of bigotry such as the white supremacist protest outside a mosque in Phoenix.

    We Tucsonans will not stand for this hatred and bigotry as this governor attempts to go rogue against Federal law, UN Human Rights, and common human decency. 

    We will demand the Ducey and all the other racist Governors follow Federal law and peacefully admit refugees from all areas, most urgrently from war-torn Syria.”  Hosted by Tucson’s Anti-War Committee
