6 Principles for a Fair and Just Immigration Reform for Strong Families, Public Trust and a Strong Economy

WHAT: A central coast taskforce of diverse interfaith, labor, and community based groups has come together to call on President Barack Obama to lead our nation and work with our Congressional representatives based on 6 Principles rooted in shared values of human dignity and a just, healthy and prosperous community now and for the long term.

2013 is the year to fix our broken national immigration system that separates infants and children from their mothers and fathers, costs tax-payers for detaining non-criminals that would otherwise not be detained and jeopardizes employers and businesses without a reliable workforce and gives rise to slavery conditions for undocumented workers. Local taskforce members will present 6 Principles for a Just and Economically Prosperous Immigration Reform with specific legislation priorities.
