Every election cycle, “immigration” becomes a major talking point and decisive campaign issue. Republicans scapegoat immigrants, fanning the flames of white supremacy and using anti-immigrant rhetoric to mobilize their base. Meanwhile, Democrats promise to stand by our community, but have failed to deliver on immigration reform for the past two decades.
The result is that our community continues to suffer, with hundreds more people detained, deported, and separated from their families every single day. Enough is enough.
#Dignity2020 an immigrant-led campaign to change the conversation around immigration during the 2020 election. We can no longer afford to let parties and candidates set the terms of what’s politically possible or convenient. Instead, we’re putting forth a new vision for immigrant dignity that actually reflects the urgent needs of the undocumented community. Any 2020 presidential candidates who say they “stand with immigrants” will be held to our standard.
