This Wednesday, immigration advocates announced a national campaign for immigration reform that includes 60 popular assemblies in key states of the United States, to debate and discuss actions to pressure Congress to approve it before the upcoming August recess.
In a press conference, representatives of the coalition of 34 Latin organizations stated that 2013 “will be the year of the reform” and should include “non-negotiable principles” to get to the legalization and eventual citizenship for the undocumented population.
The coalition made it clear that the reform must include measures to provide legal channels for future migration, family reunification, and implementing “smart” immigration laws.
The United Latin’s Campaign for Immigration Reform include 60 popular assemblies to mobilize communities, making visits to the Congress and develop more than 100,000 encounters. Also allow phone calls, Twitter, and sending letters, postcards and emails to legislators.
