Immigrant Communities

Oregon’s anti-racial profiling law passed with broad support from Democrats and Republicans over 30 years ago and has been protecting Oregonians from unfair racial profiling ever since. But in 2018, anti-immigrant extremists introduced a ballot measure that attempted to repeal it.

Oregonians for Immigration Reform (OFIR) and the Federation of Immigration Reform (FAIR), both designated extremist hate groups by the Southern Poverty Law Center, were behind this anti-immigrant measure that would open the door to racial profiling and families being torn apart simply because someone is perceived to be an undocumented immigrant.

We worked tirelessly to spread the word to voters, who overwhelmingly defeated the extreme measure, confirming that Oregon is no place for hate.
