• Defend DACA Now in Oregon!
    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. The first step in this fight is to ask elected officials 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

  • Stop Texas Lawmakers' Attack on Immigrant Students. #StopSB4
    My name is Karla Perez and I am an undocumented law student at the University of Houston Law Center. I will graduate from law school in May 2018, twenty-three years after coming to Texas with my parents. My parents and I have set down deep roots in our community, just like many of the 1.5 million undocumented immigrants who call Texas home. Right now, anti-immigrant legislation could be signed and that would make all Texans less secure. Anti-immigrant bills like Senate Bill 4 by Senator Charles Perry enable racial profiling, and someone like my father, an undocumented person of color, can run the risk of their immigration status being used by local law enforcement to turn them over to ICE. Senate Bill 4 will give local law enforcement the power to enforce federal immigration law, even though they are not trained to do so and this puts people like my parents at serious risk of landing in immigration proceedings and being torn from their loved ones. Increased mistrust in law enforcement will not keep us safe and will only drive undocumented crime survivors and witnesses into the shadows and away from getting the justice they deserve. Students and educators, along with faith, business, and law enforcement leaders agree that anti-immigrant bills like Senate Bill 4 are bad for all Texans. Add your name to stand against racist SB4.
