Immigrant Rights

Call To Action: Families Belong Together

We are appalled by the separation of over 2,300 children in the short time since the enactment of the Trump administration's new zero tolerance policy. While this policy was rescinded yesterday by executive order, the creation of what essentially are family jails is not a humane alternative. We demand that the administration ensure the immediate and safe return of the children already separated back to their parents and that racist attacks on immigrant communities stop. Two immigration bills that will harm the family-based immigration system - Goodlatte's Securing America's Future Act and Paul Ryan and Donald Trump's Border Security and Immigration Reform Act - will likely be voted on today: Call your Congressmember now!

LAT: Trump to block victims of domestic abuse from asylum

Atty. Gen. Jeff Sessions has ordered immigration judges to stop granting asylum to most victims of domestic abuse and gang violence, a move that would block tens of thousands of people, especially women, from seeking refuge in America. The attorney general’s decision forms a key part of a broader Trump administration effort to restrict immigration and discourage asylum seekers from coming to the U.S. The administration has also stripped various legal rights from detainees, and has been separating families detained by immigration agents.

Biking Border to Border to Demand Citizenship for All!

We are proud to announce our new “Citizenship for All” campaign which will be launched through our upcoming, border to border “Journey to Justice” Bike Tour August 2018. To launch the “Citizenship for All” campaign, we will embark on a border to border bike tour under the name “Journey to Justice.” Starting on August 1st, our young leaders and allies will bike from Seattle, Washington and continue on until September 6th where we will end the tour in San Diego, California. Through this campaign, our young leaders will cultivate genuine relationships with the rural and urban communities we will bike to, build coalitions with local immigrant and AAPI organizations, and advocate for policy change that provides a clear pathway to citizenship for all non-citizens.

Orange County coalition unites for California values, against Trump-inspired vote in Los Alamitos

On Monday April 16, Los Alamitos Community United (LACU) and a broad coalition of faith, immigrant, civil rights, and youth groups united to promote California values and celebrate diversity in the face unconstitutional and hateful attacks from Trump-inspired hate groups. Although the Los Alamitos City Council voted 4-1 on an ordinance seeking to exempt the city from state law that limits local and state resources from being used for federal immigration enforcement, yesterday's rally was about youth, community, and how we countered the hate and xenophobia of a few with the love and energy over 100 community members from Orange County.

Fullerton Shows Up for its Immigrant Communities

FULLERTON, CA - On the night of April 3rd, 2018, Mayor Pro Tem Greg Sebourn and Council Member Jennifer Fitzgerald requested the City of Fullerton consider supporting the Department of Justice (DOJ) lawsuit against the State of California regarding the California Values Act (SB 54), also known as the 'sanctuary state' bill, alongside the City of Alamitos, the Orange County Board of Supervisors, and others.
