En una carta abierta, 20 organizaciones lideradas por migrantes en los Estados Unidos que forman parte de la red de Alianza Americas, piden al presidente de México, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, que implemente políticas migratorias humanas que respeten el derecho a migrar y el derecho al asilo.
The following is a joint statement from Presente.org and Alianza Americas in response to the upcoming UN Climate Change Conference COP26 in Glasgow, Scotland.
Alianza Americas and Presente.org members and organizations are calling on the Biden-Harris administration and the U.S. Congress to ensure the inclusion and protection of immigrants in the budget reconciliation process with a series of videos capturing the voices of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) holders, essential workers, and Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) holders.
Millions of migrants seeking safety and protection at our border illustrates the ongoing impact the pandemic, the climate crisis, and growing inequality is having around the world. Furthermore, detaining people who are seeking relief fuels the detention center torture-for-profit apparatus.
25 years ago, one of the worst laws you’ve probably never heard of, IIRIRA, calcified an immigration system based on punishment, restriction, and exclusion.This draconian law has severely curtailed due process for immigrants, supercharged deportations, and has allowed local law enforcement agencies to serve as immigration agents. Laws rooted in white supremacy have no place in our nation.
