We took risks, confronted fear and demanded that our leaders do the same. By following suit, President Obama’s decision brings the possibility of shifting course on immigration, and correcting injustices that have held our country back. With this executive action, we must seek to defend it, implement it with expedience and fairness and most importantly seek to expand it more people, and continue to build immigration policy that is inclusive and just.” Pablo Alvarado, Executive Director of the National Day Laborer Organizing Network, "The President's speech tonight is a testament to the power and determination of migrants who have refused to remain silent in the face of unprecedented hostility, bigotry, and injustice.   We will evaluate the new policy on the merits as details are made available, and we will judge its success or failure in the days ahead based on whether it helps or harms those who we know and love." (Read Alvarado's full statement here) Carlos Garcia, Director of Puente Arizona, Phoenix “The President’s decision signals a changing course from the politics of Arizona. Many of our community members who have fought for this change now wonder if they will be excluded and persecuted. Many could now be fast-tracked for deportation, because they have been branded as criminals. We don’t support the arbitrary line between criminalized felons and spared families.  Therefore we will work to ensure the President’s order is implemented, as well as continue the fight to expand inclusion to all of our communities.” Yesenia Valdez, National Organizer for FAMILIA TQLM “As a community, we know that we do not fit the normal definition of families that continue to dominate public discourse. Many LGBTQ undocumented immigrants do not have families that are US citizens or permanent residents that could allow them to qualify for the program. Additionally, we know that our community, especially trans women of color, is unfairly targeted by law enforcement through racial discrimination or for engaging in survival sex work. These daily realities mean that many…

Today is a day to take stock and give thanks for the labor, the courage, and the sacrifice of so many immigrants who have brought us to this moment despite enormous odds.   Migrant labor is often invisibilized and taken for granted in this country.  Particularly in recent years, there has been a profound violation of the social contract.  Migrants' labor is accepted, but our humanity is denied, and there has been a war of attrition that seeks to make migrants sufficiently  miserable so they are forced to leave.   This is true not just in the workplace, or in schools, or in jails, but in the halls of Washington DC, where immigrants' role in defending and advancing the labor movement, the civil rights movement, and cherished constitutional values has been drowned out by politicians and lobbyists with partisan agendas.   The country has gone through unprecedented challenges as immigration reform legislation has languished in Congress.  There has been xenophobic paranoia following September 11th,  a repulsive current of resurgent racism follow the election of our nation's first black President, and we have seen a wholesale domestic human rights crisis unfold in Arizona and elsewhere that shocked the conscious of the world.   And despite all of this, millions of people stand on the verge of breathing easier tonight.   While still millions more stand to be left out.   We expect xenophobes to unite in opposition to the positive portions of the President's policy, and in support of the dangerous new initiatives that will further criminalize those who are left out.   As…
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE     National Religious & Immigrant Leaders to President: 5 Million Is Not Enough Christian, Jewish and immigrant leaders stress urgency for President to use his full legal authority for broad, inclusive action on immigration   Click here to listen to PRESS TELECONFERENCE AUDIO   WASHINGTON — As President Barack Obama prepares to make his historic announcement on immigration, national faith and immigrant leaders urge the President not to limit what is in his full legal authority to enact. The President must make his executive order inclusive and provide opportunity and justice for all our undocumented community members. Deferred action from deportation should not be limited to individuals who have been in the United States for a long time, or those who have family members here. In addition, those with immigration charges or other infractions should have the full ability to apply for temporary relief.   Remarks from speakers on this morning's national press teleconference:   Rev. John L. McCullough, President and CEO of Church World Service "Administrative relief is a welcome, past-due step to stop separating moms and dads from their kids, and we will not be done fighting until all 11 million undocumented members of our communities are protected. There will be a backlash whether he grants temporary relief to 1 million people or 11 million. So we urge the President: Give everyone the chance to apply. There is a very strong grassroots movement across the United States and this commitment has been without pause. Should the President not extend the full authority he has and include everyone, we are going to continue and our efforts are going to intensify as an unrelenting force for justice."   Pablo Alvarado, Director, National Day Laborer Organizing Network (NDLON):“We are grateful for the labor, the courage, the risk and the sacrifice of so many undocumented migrants who have gotten us to this moment, and we will judge the President's policy on the merits, by measuring whether it helps or hurts those who we know and love. We have endured a war of attrition against immigrants for more than a decade and now the President can turn the tide.  He must mirror the courage of the people whose efforts have brought us to this point. Today can be the day to end the triangulations and wedge issues and recognize that our entire community is 100% deserving of relief.” Bishop Minerva Carcaño, United Methodist…

You need JavaScript enabled to view it. \n   NDLON reaction to mixed messages as anticipation builds.   As leaks trickle out about the President's plans to announce a change in deportation policy, reports have surfaced that the White House is turning to familiar allies to defend the policy shift regardless of its substance.    The Hill reported that the WH is "tempering expectations."   Meanwhile, Director of the White House Domestic Policy Council Cecilia Muñoz told Politico, that the President will be "going to go as far as he can under the law.”   In reaction, Pablo Alvarado issued this statement:   " We agree with Muñoz that the President must do everything under the law to protect immigrants, and we will join in supporting him if and when he does. The question is whether he has the moral courage to do the right thing.    The President must look to administrative relief as a question of correcting injustice and ensuring good governance and end the pattern of using immigrants’ lives for partisan games.   He quite clearly has the legal authority to grant work authorization at the very least to those who would qualify for the bipartisan Senate bill's legalization framework. If his advisors see this as setting up another push in Congress, the best way to do that is through reaffirming what both Democrats and Republicans have already agreed to not undermining it.   What we will not support is more political football or being treated as a wedge issue, nor will we accept arbitrary lines that divide us.   100% of immigrants deserve equality, and regardless of what the President says or when he says it, we will continue to use every tool at our disposal to defend and advance our rights."   ###

Less Leaks, More Action from White House

For immediate release // excuse cross-postingContact: B. Loewe, NDLON, 773.791.4668, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. \n   NDLON: Less Leaks, More Action from White House Support for Senate Bill Can Start with Including its Beneficiaries in Executive Action In reaction to rumors reported by Fox News and the New York Times and comments during the White House Press Briefing, Pablo Alvarado, Executive Director of the National Day Laborer Organizing Network issued statement from Washington DC: "We need less leaks and more action from within the White House. As far as we're concerned, the rumors reported in the Times and by Fox change nothing. They are rumors. For well over a decade, immigrants have been harmed by trial balloons, false promises, and a poisonous political environment in Washington DC that reduces migrant lives to pawns in partisan games. We call upon the President to provide work authorization minimally to those who would qualify for the Senate bill. Today, Josh Earnest said President Obama would sign it were the House to pass it. The same standard that the President is using to judge the House is the standard that immigrants will use to judge executive action. Will the President build upon, or undermine, the bipartisan Senate bill framework? We call upon President Obama to fully end the Secure Communities program which has been a catastrophic failure that caused the Arizonification of the country. And we call upon the President to meet immediately with undocumented immigrants and those who are most impacted by, and therefore most expert on, the status quo. Immigrant rights have been held hostage by failed political maneuvers for too long. Those who have forced this debate to the forefront of the national agenda have done so through struggle and sacrifice, through courageous civil disobedience, protest, and lawsuits that seek refuge in federal courts. In addition to doing necessary work for the US economy, immigrants have taken on the work of defending cherished national values. And we will keep fighting until immigrants achieve full equality. The President can see to it that we wait not one more day. Until then, we keep fighting." MEDIA AVAILABILITY: Pablo Alvarado is available in Washington, DC. Additionally today, NDLON filed suit against the Department of Homeland Security to halt deportations and expand relief to the fullest extent under the law.More Details on the suit can be found at http://notonemoredeportation.com/resources/rulemaking ###
  President's Comments Must Be Followed by Immediate Action     This weekend on Face the Nation, President Obama told his interviewer, "We're deporting people who shouldn't be deported." In response to the comments, Pablo Alvarado, Executive Director of the National Day Laborer Organizing Network issued the following: "The President's statements show a new recognition of the moral and legal truth about his unjust and unnecessary deportation policy. President Obama has now admitted mistake. The next step obviously is to fix it by ending programs like "Secure Communities" that criminalize immigrants and by expanding relief to the fullest extent possible under current law. It's been widely known that his administration's enforcement-first gamble was a disaster both for the nation's politics and for immigrant families. Now he is in a position to fix it. Executive action should not wait for uncertain outcomes in Congress. Instead it should at the very least uphold the bipartisan agreement that was reached by extending relief to all those who would have qualified for the Senate bill. It is the President's responsibility to make his policy 'more humane' as he said in the Spring. By acting now, the President can jumpstart the path to inclusion and empower the best advocates on immigration, undocumented people themselves, to fully participate in the process."   ###

Time for President to Fight with Immigrants

for immediate release // excuse cross-postingContact: B. Loewe, NDLON, 773.791.4668 President Must Decide to Act Immigrants Continue to Demand Equal Rights, End to Deportations In response to the 2014 midterm election results, Pablo Alvarado, Executive Director of the National Day Laborer Organizing Network issued the following statement:   President Obama must decide whether to continue to appease the xenophobes in Congress or fight back in defense of the promise of his Presidency.  Those who deny his legal authority to protect immigrants are the same people who have asked for his birth certificate.  He must stand up to them now, and he must stand with immigrants who are fighting for equality.    It is no longer a question of if President Obama will act or even when.  The question is this:  What will the President do?   Will he build upon, or undermine, the bipartisan legalization framework forged in the Senate?  Will he finally listen to the chorus of cities and states that have revolted against his failed Secure Communities deportation program?  Will he meet with directly impacted immigrant rights leaders from around the country, or will he continue to listen to the same Beltway insiders who have given him terrible political advice on immigration?     Regardless of what the President or the new Republican majority decide, one thing is clear.   Immigrants will continue to organize and rely upon one another in defense of equal rights.

Executive Action Not Electoral Spin

for immediate release // excuse cross-posting Contact: B. Loewe, NDLON, 773.791.4668   Fact: President Has Authority and Responsibility to Act on ImmigrationInhumane Immigration Policy Requires Executive Reforms  Not Electoral Triangulation   In anticipation of political analysis of the impact of today's elections on immigration policy, Pablo Alvarado, executive director of the National Day Laborer Organizing Network issued the following statement:   Many people will try to spin today's election results to have meaning either for or against executive action on immigration. The truth is that the two are unrelated no matter how hard lobbyists and partisans will try to connect them.    The fact is that the President has the moral responsibility and the full authority under existing law to expand relief and end the policies he himself has described as inhumane.  Good policy should not be subject to bad politics.    The Obama administration's pattern of subordinating immigration policy to either legislative or electoral considerations has had catastrophic results. But when he declared a review of deportation practices to make them 'more humane,' he signaled the opportunity to finally free the issue of immigration from the poisonous politics of Washington and focus on what's right.    President Obama was elected on a promise to change the way politics work in Washington. Fulfilling that pledge can start with doing what is right on immigration: immediately expanding the relief he already provided immigrant youth and ending the programs that criminalize the very immigrants he's said should be granted inclusion in this country.   ###
Yesterday, for the first time, Janet Napolitano revealed her perspective on how the decision to do DACA was made in 2012.   Today, Buzzfeed is reporting that the President is set to receive final recommendations from his current Secretary of Homeland Security about expected changes in deportation policies.   In reaction, Pablo Alvarado the Executive Director for the National Day Laborer Organizing Network issued the following statement:   "While there is clearly a battle under way to manage expectations for the scope of the forthcoming administrative action, we will continue to push for the maximum exercise of legal discretion under the law.  That includes a bare minimum, an extension of work authorization to everyone who would qualify under the Senate bill and end to the Secure Communities program and policies that criminalize immigrants.   The President has the legal authority, the moral obligation, and the political capital required to take these important steps.    "If the President provides relief for less people than would have qualified for a path to citizenship under the Senate bill, he will divide the immigrant rights community and undermine the rarest of things in Washington DC nowadays:  a bipartisan consensus.  Janet Napolitano's speech yesterday revealed that the extension of relief to 'Dreamers' in 2012 was a wholly artificial division between so called 'deserving and undeserving' immigrants.   According to her speech, the political cover for the action came from the DREAM Act (which failed to pass out of the Senate) and the scope of coverage was limited by bureaucratic constraints. Napolitano's speech confirmed what we have known for some time.  The President can and should do more.  Much more.   “Despite what might be the latest rumor of the day within the Washington Beltway, a reasonable expectation for the President is that he uses a similar calculation as he did in 2012.  Only this time, instead of using the DREAM Act as a template, he should use the Senate Bill, which received 68 votes in the US Senate.   Anything less will be unacceptable and met with further protest.” ###

The idea behind Chant Down the Walls came up when 200 day laborers from around the country joined LA residents in a march from Placita Olvera to the Metropolitan Detention Center in late August. When the march reached the corner of Alameda and Aliso, the sound of people pounding on their windows inside prompted the marchers to look up and be confronted with the faces of those inside, their held up messages scrawled on toilet papers, and their raised their fists as the marchers outside chanted, "No están solos/You are not alone.”  For the next several weeks, we will return every Monday evening to amplify that message with musicians who will hold a concert for the detainees with songs that will penetrate the detention center walls. We'll rally to say ICE Out of LA and get our loved ones out of the jails. WHAT: Chant Down the Walls concert series, kickstarting with Chilean Activist/MC, Ana Tijoux  and Los Jornaleros del Norte. WHEN: Monday, October 13th @ 12 noon WHERE: In front of the Metropolitan Detention Center, 535 N. Alameda Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012 (on the corner of N. Alameda St. & E. Aliso St.) ###

City of Baldwin Park, alleging that the Baldwin Park Police Department and the City of Baldwin Park unlawfully imprisoned Sergio Flores at the Baldwin Park Police station, detaining him solely on the basis of an “immigration hold,” in violation of the California TRUST Act. The TRUST Act (AB 4), which went into effect on January 1, 2014, limits cruel and costly immigration “holds” in local jails. California’s TRUST Act sought to restore trust between police and immigrant communities in the wake of the Secure Communities program - a discredited federal deportation program that has led to the separation of hundreds of thousands of immigrant families. In direct violation of the law, Baldwin Park Police intentionally and illegally detained Mr. Flores, who was arrested for driving without a license and has no criminal history, for several days on the sole basis of an immigration “hold” request. As a result of his unlawful detention, Mr. Flores is now facing the prospect of deportation and separation from his U.S. citizen son. ”Law enforcement officials who choose to honor ICE holds issued against peaceful immigrants raising families in California undermine public safety and community cohesion,” stated Thomas A. Saenz, MALDEF President and General Counsel.  “State law now clearly prohibits this detrimental conduct by police in California.” In addition to violating Mr. Flores’ rights under the TRUST Act, the Baldwin Park Police Department refused to allow Mr. Flores to post bail for which he was eligible, and which he was willing and able to pay. By confining Mr. Flores without cause or a judicial warrant Baldwin Park City was in direct violation of state law.  Matthew Barragan, MALDEF Staff Attorney, stated: “The TRUST Act is intended to restore community trust for immigrants who are too afraid of deportation to report crime to local law enforcement.  The Baldwin Park Police Department…

Molina's stigmatization of the victims of enforcement casts a cloud of suspicion over the entire immigrant community and ignores the realities of criminalization.   The Board's symbolic votes illustrates their failed leadership and the trust deficit elected officials have with communities, but it will not be what determines Los Angeles' future. The 287(g) program will likely be terminated at the federal level, and we will work with the next Sheriff and the new Board to ensure Los Angeles County takes appropriate steps to restore trust in law enforcement, respect civil rights, and protect all residents." ###

ICE Out of LA Coalition to Rally Before BOS Vote.   October 6, 2014 - Los Angeles, CA Though hard to believe, there are rumors that the LA Board of Supervisors might vote to extend 287(g), a deportation program that has been discredited and essentially abandoned across the country.   Conceived as a program to "disappear" immigrants without due process or probable cause, the program works hand in hand with the infamous Secure Communities program.   The result of jail based deportations has been a deportation surge, civil rights violations, and erosion of public safety.    In fact, in LA County, 44%  of Latinos report being less likely to call the police out of fear that authorities will investigate their immigration status.    Even the notorious Sheriff Joe Arpaio has acknowledged that the 287(g) program caused racial profiling.       Now, 250 jurisdictions have taken steps to protect residents from brutal, unconstitutional detainer initiated deportations.  On the eve of vote in Los Angeles, residents, immigrants, civil rights leaders, and labor leaders are planning to rally at the Board of Supervisors tomorrow morning at 9:00 am to oppose the program outside of the Kenneth Hahn Hall of Administration, 500 West Temple Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012.   Pablo Alvarado, Executive Director of the National Day Laborer Organizing Network (NDLON) states, "From Washington DC to LA county, there is a trust deficit right now when it comes to policymaking on immigration.    We fully expect LA supervisors to do the right thing and continue progress toward creating a clear line between local police and deportation efforts by ending the 287(g) agreement.  The TRUST Act passed one year ago was a major step forward followed by Los Angeles refusing to submit to Immigration’s unconstitutional detainer requests. Now the Board has the opportunity to further remove Arizona-style policies from LA’s books.”   Luis Ojeda, from the California Immigrant Youth Justice Alliance (CIYJA), says, "There is no reason for ICE to be in LA jails period.  Particularly for the Supervisors who are primarily motivated by public safety considerations , this should be an easy vote as there is a mountain of evidence that 287(g) has undermined community safety." "It's rather surprising that there is still a debate…
