SEN. RUSH: SUPPORT SAFE COMMUNITIES

LETTER TO BE DELIVERED TO SEN. MIKE RUSH, ON SAFE COMMUNITIES ACT.

MEETING IS ON JUNE 6 TUESDAY. PLEASE ADD YOUR NAME IN SUPPORT below ASAP AND SHARE! (this page: progressivemass.com/needham-issues)

I urge you, Senator Michael Rush, to share this most American generosity of spirit by strongly supporting the Safe Communities Act, S. 1305. It would honor your Irish immigrant grandparents, and the many soldiers and sailors who are not US citizens.

Immigrants who are crime victims are not coming forward because they fear the police. The Los Angeles police chief has said that reports of rape among Hispanic residents have declined by 25%, and reports of domestic abuse have dropped by 10%. Houston police chief Art Acevedo told reporters in April that the number of Hispanics reporting rape is down 43% from last year. The Safe Communities Act would reduce this fear in Massachusetts and let police continue to build trust in their community, which is vital for community policing.

Each month since Pres. Trump’s Inauguration, more than 100 undocumented people who are not criminals have been arrested by ICE in Massachusetts. Please vote for the Safe Communities Act to stop their families from these wrenching disruptions.

I’m a constituent, a registered voter in your district. Your vote on the Safe Communities Act will be a major factor in my decision of who to vote for.

I see that your scorecard rating from Progressive Massachusetts is 47 on a scale of 1 to 100. Please represent the priority of Progressive Mass and others on this issue.

Respectfully,
