The Constitutionality of South Carolina’s new immigration law (SB 20) is being challenged in Federal Court in Charleston on MON Dec 19th.  We gather to oppose this draconian law.    If upheld, the law will require law enforcement to investigate the legal status of anyone they stop and develop a “reasonable suspicion” the person is not here legally. Immigrants are our neighbors, our brothers and sisters, our teachers, our service members, and they should not be treated as “others.”
