CAMPAIGN TO COLLECT
A MILLION SIGNATURES FOR
GENUINE IMMIGRATION REFORM
AND AGAINST DEPORTATIONS


Sunday, February 5, 2PM
Bayanihan Center 40-21, 69th Street, Woodside, Queens
Train 7 to 69th Street Queens


The International Migrants Alliance (IMA) invites community organizations representing immigrants from different countries to an assembly to coordinate the campaign for the collection of 1 million signatures for a genuine, just and humanitarian immigration reform promoting the integration of the undocumented into society, permitting a dignified life, access to education, healthcare, and work without being victims of exploitation, abuse and violence.The petitions will be delivered to the White House and the US Congress.

We demand an end to the raids and deportations which divide and destroy families. Racist authorities take advantage of these laws to strengthen their racist policies on migration and have spread them to various states denying immigrants education, health services housing and jobs. They are even trying to deny children born in the US their citizenship. These laws have encouraged neo fascist, xenophobic groups which attack and murder immigrants.

We should not permit raids which break into people’s homes, even as they sleep, to go to work and school the next day, treating them as if they were criminals, violating their human rights and dignity. We immigrants perform the worst paid jobs and we pay taxes and send money to our native countries. We are not terrorists nor criminals nor a load on this country.

Join this campaign for the rights of immigrants and take part in the campaign to collect 1 million signatures.
