Families of Arpaio's Victims Confront Montgomery: Drop the Charges!

 

Sign and Share the Petition at bit.ly/dropchargesstopraids
Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery holds the lives of workers and their families in his hands. For the last year, Montgomery has gone out of his way to charge the victims of Arpaio's workplace raids with Class Four felonies, a charge that makes workers ineligible for criminal and immigration bond and sentences them to a near certain deportation. We demand Bill Montgomery recognize the illegality of Arpaio's raids and stop being his accomplice by dropping the criminal charges of workers simply trying to feed their families.
Sign the petition and call Bill Montgomery at (602) 506-3411 and demand the charges are dropped.
