In the United States, the civil rights era has long been an uneasy one.
For decades, a generation of African Americans was growing up without a voice in politics or in the media.
It was a time of widespread suspicion and distrust of the government and a distrust of political leaders, and the civil right movement was largely ignored.
But in Louisiana, the Civil Rights Act of 1964 ushered in the era of civil rights activism and the first major victories for the black community.
Now, the movement is back in full force, and civil rights leaders are working to make Louisiana a better place for all citizens.
“It’s a huge, huge victory for Louisiana, because we’re going to have to do more than talk about our civil rights,” said Richard Gebhardt, a Louisiana state representative and the author of the bill that would end the state’s so-called sanctuary city law.
“We have to fight for what we have, and what our civil society is about.”
A new poll conducted by the Louisiana Public Policy Institute shows that a majority of Louisiana voters support ending the state of Louisiana’s sanctuary city policy.
“When people are talking about their issues, we don’t always talk about how to win the fight, and that’s what the bill is about,” said Gebhart, who also heads the Louisiana chapter of the NAACP.
“This is about making sure that we can achieve victory without resorting to the kind of tactics that have failed us in the past.”
The bill passed the Louisiana Senate last week by a vote of 37-2.
It would end Louisiana’s “sanctuary city” law and allow the state to designate specific cities and towns to be exempt from federal immigration law.
The bill would also establish a commission to study ways to improve the state economy and increase the participation of the black middle class.
“What we’re saying is, let’s be bold and take the fight to the government,” said Senator David Bell, the bill’s sponsor.
“Let’s show that we don’st give up.
Let’s do this together.
We have to make this happen.”
The legislation would also provide the Louisiana state attorney general with the authority to investigate and prosecute anyone who violates federal immigration laws.
“If you’re going against the law, you’re not going to be a federal agent,” said Bell, a Republican.
“But we are going to look at the federal laws that are in place and see if we can use that to make changes.”
The governor’s office did not respond to a request for comment on the bill.
The Democratic-led state legislature has made efforts to bring about changes in the law over the years.
The legislation was initially passed by the legislature in 2015, and it was re-approved by the House in 2016.
The Republican-controlled legislature passed a bill in 2016 that would have repealed the law and given the attorney general the authority, but the bill was vetoed by then-President Donald Trump.
The attorney general’s office had previously said that it would not prosecute anyone for violating the law.
But the attorneygeneral’s office said in a statement to the Associated Press last week that it was not making any changes to the bill because it did not have a specific criminal purpose.
“While we have the authority and the ability to prosecute anyone, our focus remains on ensuring the safety and security of our citizens and residents,” the statement read.
“As we have stated in the press and elsewhere, we will continue to make every effort to protect the safety of our state’s citizens and the safety for the families and residents of Louisiana.”
The attorney-general’s report will include recommendations to improve Louisiana’s economic environment, increase the number of public schools, make schools more welcoming to students from low-income families and increase housing and other services.
“I believe the bill will do the job of strengthening Louisiana’s economy and protecting our state and its citizens from the criminal elements of the immigration laws that we have,” said state Sen. Kevin Stott, a Democrat who sponsored the bill in the state Senate.
“The law has been a disaster for Louisiana for decades, and I think it’s time to make some changes to help make it better.”
The NAACP has long pushed for the federal government to end the sanctuary city practice, which it says is a racist and discriminatory practice that unfairly targets immigrants who are of Hispanic descent.
The organization’s Louisiana chapter recently announced that it is partnering with the Democratic-controlled Legislature on the measure.
The group plans to use the same strategies that it used in the Louisiana gubernatorial election last year to defeat Republican Gov.
Louisiana is a key swing state in the 2016 election.
The state is also home to more than 5,000 undocumented immigrants, making it a key battleground state in any presidential election.
