BIPARTISAN LEGISLATION TO REQUIRE PUBLIC NOTICE FOR IMMIGRATION CHECKPOINTS PASSES HOUSE

CONCORD, NEW HAMPSHIRE – Today, the New Hampshire House voted 181-171 to pass HB 579, requiring notice to the public before immigration checkpoints are conducted. Following the vote, co-sponsor of the legislation, Rep. Amanda Bouldin (D-Manchester) released the following statement:


“This legislation will provide 24 hours’ notice to the public after being notified by federal law enforcement officials that an immigration checkpoint will be conducted. Racial profiling happens in our state and is unacceptable. Daily, people are stopped without probable cause or reasonable suspicion that a crime has been committed solely because of the color of their skin. Granite Staters value personal liberty and overwhelmingly oppose discrimination. Allowing advance notice of immigration checkpoints is smart policy for New Hampshire.”
