government's discrimination and racial profiling of Asian and Middle
Eastern immigrants, we are calling on CONCERNED CITIZENS, organizations,
and individuals!! Let the INS and our government know we are opposed to the
unjust and immoral act of registrations, detentions and round-ups of our
friends and family.
