During an Iowa Senate subcommittee last Tuesday, immigrants and allies heavily and passionately opposed HF 2608, a new bill from the corporate lobbying group the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC). The bill would make transporting undocumented immigrants a felony, sparking major concerns about racial profiling, accessible migrant shelters, the separation of families, and even religious freedom.

@iowastartingline Heavy opposition by immigrants and allies to a new ALEC bill, HF 2608, in #iowa today. But the 2 Republicans on the subcommittee agreed to move it on to committee anyway. #news #politics #immigration ♬ original sound – Iowa Starting Line
