Paul Bridges, the mayor of Uvalda, Ga. who filed a class action lawsuit to prevent his state from enforcing its “papers please” law, has pledged to actively advocate for American Families United.
“Mayor Bridges’ public support for American Families United’s principles strengthens our fight for U.S. citizen families,” said our President Randall Emery. “We are proud to be building a diverse, national coalition to bolster American communities and protect the rights of U.S. citizens through comprehensive reform.”
Mayor Bridges spoke out against the Georgia law that would have allowed immigrants to be detained by the police and asked for proof of citizenship. The law threatened to impose criminal penalties for anyone who knowingly harbors or transports an undocumented immigrant.
