Who would YOU raid?
“Enforcing the law” is no excuse for ruining and destroying lives.
June 12 is the anniversary of the Supreme Court’s 1967 Loving v. Virginia decision, which struck down state bans on miscegenation. The Lovings were an interracial couple who had married in Washington, D.C. They were raided by police in their Virginia home and charged with “illicit cohabitation.” They were, in effect, deported from their state. Years later, they joined with the ACLU to challenge the law in court.
