Put on the 2018 ballot by anti-immigrant extremists, Measure 105 would repeal Oregon’s anti-racial profiling law. This law passed with broad support from Democrats and Republicans over 30 years ago and has been protecting Oregonians from unfair racial profiling ever since.
When police play the role of federal immigration agents, many immigrants become be too afraid to report crime or seek help if they have been victimized. That’s why police and law enforcement leaders statewide endorse a “NO” vote on 105.
Oregonians for Immigration Reform (OFIR) and the Federation of Immigration Reform (FAIR), both designated extremist hate groups by the Southern Poverty Law Center, are behind this anti-immigrant measure.
If Measure 105 passes, it could open the door to racial profiling and families being torn apart, simply because someone is perceived to be an undocumented immigrant.
