"Why, McDonalds. WHY?" - Well, McDs has an outrageous answer for your questions in this video. ‪#‎cuentame‬ (SHARE!)

Did you all watch #Elysium? We were disspointed. On a couple fronts. 
It was a bit formulaic. We saw everything coming and we just weren’t emotionally invested. 
We also felt that if it’s intentions were to have the audience emphatize with immigrants it, it failed. Badly. 
Doesn’t it just seems like, “Oh the Brown hordes have done what we’ve been afraid of for so long. Ruined the U.S. and the planet.”

Immigration Fight!

Immigration Fight!

Update: Thanks to you and the tons of calls after watching our video, now the case on Ruth Montaño has been dropped and is officially closed. She will remain together with her children here at home!

Can we get a signal boost? 

On Dec 31st 2012 Bakersfield police arrested Ruth Montaño after a neighbor had complained about barking dogs. Police then racially profiled Ruth and asked her for immigration status. Now Ruth may be taken from her three U.S. born children. 

Call ICE at 202.732.3000 

"I am calling in support of Ruth Montaño, Case No. A205 763 399 and ask that her deportation case be dropped. She is a low priority deportation, she has no criminal record. She has 3 U.S. citizen children." 

This is how you stand up for immigrant rights at a senate hearing! 

Share if you want to see an immigrant worker in the next hearing,

Send a message to President Obama and leading legislatures. We want rights before enforcement.
Visit http://immigrantbillofrights.org and tell us with text, video, or image, what right do you demand?

What do you guys think of our campaign lead? 

The conversation on “immigration reform” sounds more like immigration deform. There’s tons of talk of enforcement that tells you legislators aren’t taking into accounts migrants, but rather a nativist narrative that constructs migrants unworthy of rights. 

It’s clear we need to shift the conversation to focus on the stories migrants. Demand rights, not more broken enforcement. We invite you http://immigrantbillofrights.org and tell us what you want Obama and legislative leader to consider during the immigration debate.

There’s a lot of talk about immigration legislation lately, and this is a question that needs to be asked. What do YOU demand from immigration reform?
