OUR DEMANDS

  • REPLACE PARTIAL PROBATIONARY STATUS WITH FULL CITIZENSHIP RIGHTS for all people who live here, go to school here, work here, and otherwise contribute to this society. Latina/o, black, Asian, Arab, Native American, white, immigrants with and without papers—we are ALL Americans.
  • OPEN THE BORDERS—give people the same rights that NAFTA provides to the corporations for unrestricted passage across borders.
  • NO RESTRICTIONS to gaining citizenship should be placed on young people brought by their parents.
  • NO FINES for the millions of people without papers who are here now. No more deportations.
  • CLEAR, DEFINITE TIMELINES should be set for people to gain citizenship—not indefinite probation.
  • PASS THE DREAM ACT NOW!
