Working Groups: Immigrants Rights
Dedicated to change.
The Rio Grande Valley is blessed with a richly diverse community, one that celebrates the mixed immigration status of our families, schools, and churches. This goodness has been increasingly challenged by efforts to militarize the border communities, and criminalize immigrants.
For the past eight years, the group has joined local, state, regional and national collaborative efforts to push for a comprehensive, just and humane immigration policy.
The group has advocated for the DREAM Act and the DREAMERS, and universal drivers' licenses. The tactics of the working group are to foster alliances among community organizations, schools, churches, small businesses, law enforcement agencies and other groups impacted by our broken immigration system.
