Keynote Speaker: Shanta Driver
BAMN National Chair, Immigration & Civil Rights Attorney
- 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 paper — 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 Federal DREAM Act.
The current national debate on the “Bipartisan Framework for Comprehensive Immigration Reform,” lauded by President Obama, provides the immigrant rights movement with a new opportunity to rise up and take to the streets to assure that the new immigration law gives the equality and full citizenship that we deserve.
