A number of proposed bills condemn vigilante or hate activity targeting immigrants:

  • California AJR 16, adopted by both chambers in 2007, urges local, state, and federal government officials, when crafting immigration policy that affects the United States-Mexico border, to take steps to recognize and protect the human rights of immigrants, and publicly denounce xenophobia and anti-immigrant bias as having no place in immigration policy.
  • Arizona HCR 2011¬†is a proposed¬†resolution against civilian patrol groups in Arizona. The resolution opposes individualized groups that are not formally affiliated with any federal or state law enforcement agency and whose members take it upon themselves to invade Arizona.
