Immigrant Rights

May Day is for immigrants, too

By Gabriel Camacho and Arnie Alpert, Special to CNN

Imagine that you have made it to the United States from a country where economic opportunities are absent. You've found work in a laundry, a restaurant kitchen, a nursing home, or on a construction site. The pay is low by U.S. standards, but you save enough to send some every month to your family back home.

Testimony on border security

Statement for the Congressional Record pertaining to the Senate Judiciary Committee Hearing

April 19, 2013

Summary:

AFSC finds the Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act of 2013 a positive first step but a far cry from the just and humane reforms for which immigrant communities, faith, labor and advocacy groups have been calling. Instead it reproduces, and even expands, many of the current failed policies that are cruel, costly and inefficient.

PHILADELPHIA (April 16, 2013) - The American Friends Service Committee (AFSC) finds the summary of the immigration bill released by eight U.S. Senators today a far cry from the just and humane reforms that immigrant communities, faith, labor and advocacy groups have been calling for. Instead it reproduces, and even doubles down on, many of the current failed policies.
