Crossing Borders And Making Change

Abby Zimet

Today, members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus and an estimated
2,500 members of rights, labor and immigrant advocacy groups will visit
D.C. to unveil what is being touted as the requirements for any
proposed immigration reform. The Sanctuary, a grassroots community of
online immigration activists, suggests their own 25 principles to be considered to render reform truly progressive.

"Unlike the past, we should judge future legislation and policy not by
how successful it will be at apprehending, deporting, or incarcerating
migrants ... but rather on how little apprehension, deportation and
incarceration would be necessary."

Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
