• Defend DACA Now in Illinois!
    On June 29, 2017 Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, along with 9 other Republican attorneys general from Alabama, Arkansas, Idaho, Kansas, Louisiana, Nebraska, South Carolina, Tennessee and West Virginia, as well as the Governor of Idaho, sent a letter to U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions calling for the Secretary of Homeland Security to phase out the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). In their ultimatum to the Trump Administration, the attorneys general present two options: get rid of DACA or they will fight to destroy it in the courts. The letter goes on to state that the Trump Administration has until September 5th, 2017 to begin the phase-out of DACA: halting the renewal and issuing of new DACA or expanded DACA permits and calling for an ultimate end to the program. If the administration does not act on the letter’s demand, the attorneys general will expand the lawsuit they used to end DAPA (a sister program meant to protect Dreamers' parents and family members) to now add a challenge to DACA. Recently, Luis Gutierrez met with Secretary of Homeland Security, General Kelly, and warned DACA and TPS recipients to prepare for the worst. This is a serious threat for hundreds of thousands of young immigrants, and it will take all of us raising our voices together to begin to turn the tide. DACA has allowed hundreds of thousands of qualified immigrant youth to gain legal protection, go to college, and support their families and communities. While Trump vowed he would leave Dreamers and DACA alone, a handful of states have now threatened to sue to try to end it themselves. As a DACA recipient myself, I believe in our power when we stand together. A handful of cynical Republicans want to trade our dignity and respect for cheap political points, but I am hopeful that our community and our allies will have our back. The first step in this fight is to ask Governors from every state to come out publicly defending -- instead of destroying -- DACA. They can use their power to make a strong case for why DACA is worth saving, but they need to hear from us that this is a critical priority.

  • SB 54 California Wall of Justice for Immigrants
    With the recent series of raids and new orders, this vulnerable population is being criminalized, living in fear, and families are being separated. The fear among immigrants, especially those undocumented, has significantly increased at the same time that the safety within our communities ha diminished. SB 54 is essential because the issue it's rooted in a discriminatory process tearing families apart. SB 54 will create safe zones throughout the state by prohibiting immigration enforcement on public schools, hospitals and courthouse premises. President Trump's Executive Order because it blurs the definition of what a serious criminal is. Public safety will suffer if local law enforcement loses the trust of the immigrant community or uses its resources to enforce immigration laws instead of focusing on serious felonies. State and local participation in immigration enforcement will come at a serious cost to California unless appropriate safeguards are put in place.

  • Tell Miami Mayor Carlos: Don’t bow to Trump. Protect immigrants in Miami!
    Trump and his administration are trying to intimidate cities across the country by defunding those who are committed to protect their immigrant populations. Instead of standing up to Trump like many other cities have, Miami Mayor Carlos has turned his back on immigrants in this city by ordering county jails to comply with Trump’s immigration detention requests. Our community is no longer safe - we must act quick to resist. If enough of us sign this petition, we’ll put the necessary pressure on Mayor Carlos to resist Trump and his anti-immigrant policies that will destroy families and damage our economy. Immigrant families deserve to co live with dignity and respect in the city they call home. Picture Source: Alan Diaz/AP

  • Menlo Park, CA: Sanctuary City Ordinance
    Our immigrant community is particularly vulnerable to the current national rhetoric. These families feel scared and uncertain about being targeted and detained because of their immigration status. Immigrant children in Menlo Park schools feel scared and uncertain. We who favor adopting a sanctuary ordinance want Menlo Park to be inclusive and supportive of our most vulnerable community members, including immigrants. Sanctuary ordinances have been passed in 300 cities and counties in the US. The goal of adopting a sanctuary ordinance is to strengthen the local community by increasing trust and communication between residents and city employees. With a publicly adopted sanctuary ordinance, immigrant families in the community are less fearful of federal intervention and therefore more likely to cooperate positively with local police, school officials and other city employees.

  • Protect Immigrant Youth: Pass Dream Act Now!
    **DACA has been terminated - but we will deliver your signatures to Members of Congress showing the support that Americans have for people impacted by this announcement so that they quickly move to pass a Dream Act right away that isn't used as a vehicle for anti-immigrant policy** This is important, because hundreds of thousands of workers, families, and immigrants depend on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. If enough of us demand that General Kelly take a stance in favor of keeping the program, we can be a step closer to protecting nearly 800,000 people from deportation.

  • Tell Texas Legislators: Keep In-State Tuition!
    If anti-immigrant Texas legislators get their way, I won’t be able to complete my education. My name is Maria Gonzalez-Treviño, and I am an undocumented honors student attending the University of Houston. I hope to obtain my bachelor’s degree in Political Science by May 2018 and my ultimate dream is to go to law school and become an immigration attorney to help immigrants in my community. Unfortunately for me and thousands of students across Texas, our dreams might be crushed by the end of the legislative session. I will fight against these bills and similar ones because I see many other undocumented students’ stories as a reflection of my own. Let’s be clear; these bills are an attack on our ability to pay the in-state tuition rate at Texas colleges. As a first generation college student, I struggled to adapt to the college environment. Doubling or tripling tuition fees would only make college even more inaccessible for many of us. Everyone should have access to an education regardless of their skin color, religious beliefs or immigration status. We have the power to make sure that undocumented students like myself keep dreaming and achieving their educational and professional aspirations. If enough Texans sign this petition and share our stories, Texas legislators will see that we mean business when it comes to protecting everyone’s right to an education, allowing undocumented students to pay in-state tuition, and protecting educational equity. The more we speak up, the more pressure they will feel to stop playing political games with our education. Don’t they know by now? You don’t mess with Texas Dreamers.

  • Make Desert Hot Springs a Sanctuary for Immigrants!
    Across the country, many are calling for their universities to become sanctuary campuses. The model is the “sanctuary city,” like Austin, New York City, Chicago and dozens of other municipalities, which have declared their intention not to cooperate with federal officials seeking to deport residents simply because they lack appropriate immigration documentation. At this moment, when there is a rising national rhetoric of intolerance and acts of hate that threaten people of color, Muslims, LGBTQ individuals, Jews, women, and immigrants, among others, we strongly affirm our protection of these groups, and we affirm our intention to support all students in their quest to pursue their education without government interference.
