Tell Speaker Boehner: Condemn Rep. Rohrabacher for threatening an undocumented student

"I hate illegals" is just some of what 18-year-old undocumented student Jessica Bravo was greeted with after she made an appointment with her congressman, Rep. Dana Rohrabacher. Rep. Rohrabacher also made a veiled threat to deport her, saying he "knows where she lives."

Speaker of the House John Boehner has being trying to revamp the Republican Party's image with Latino voters after an election season full of hateful rhetoric like Rep. Rohrabacher's. What happened to Jessica Bravo is exactly the kind of thing House Speaker Boehner wouldn’t want in the media.

We need 10,000 people to sign so we can do an in-person delivery to let Boehner and the Republican party know they can't have it both ways: loving Latinos and hating Latinos. If enough of us pressure Boehner, he will be forced to publicly condemn Rep Rohrabacher’s actions, and we’ll be able to spread Jessica Bravo’s story.

UPDATE: Incredible! We just reached our fourth goal of 35,000! Can you help us get to 40,000 before we deliver the petition to Speaker Boehner's office on Tuesday?



The Message

To Speaker of the House Rep. John Boehner:

I am calling on you to publicly condemn Rep. Dana Rohrabacher's attacks against 18-year-old undocumented student Jessica Bravo, who made an appointment to meet with him and was met with insults like "I hate illegals" and veiled threats at deportation.

No one deserves that kind of treatment for sharing their story.
