    MomsRising’s Campaign to Protect Family Unity, Strengthen Communities and Ensure a Thriving Economy with the Contributions of Immigrant Families

     
    As part of MomsRising’s mission to advocate for economic security for all families living in the United States, we have reached out to our million members and developed education campaigns to build public will for fair treatment of immigrant children, mothers and families. Our intent is to further a constructive national dialog on reforming our country’s immigration policies so that they reflect our values as a nation and allow for all families to contribute to our culture and economy.

    “I'm a mom and I support the DREAM Act because any hardworking student who grows up in the United States deserves to further their education and give back to society. This is a win‐win situation for everyone: the students, the universities, the communities, employers, the economy, and society! It’s time to do what’s right for these students. The consequences of doing nothing are devastating to everyone.” ­­ -Tammy
     
    “I am the daughter of a Mexican immigrant who was born in the USA. I have friends and family members who are bright high school students yet they feel they should not care about their future because of being undocumented. I think this is a great loss to the USA.” ­­ -Maria

We understand the importance of women’s work — at home or in the workplace.

    A Blog Carnival Celebrating Our Common Humanity: ‘We Belong Together’ Goes to Alabama!

    Posted April 11th, 2012 by 

    As I was preparing to write this post about the upcoming We Belong Together delegation to Birmingham, Alabama, I came across a horrifying and upsetting story from Wyoming about a mother who killed herself and her daughter after being targeted in an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raid. “Friends say that after the ICE agents came, [Erica] Delgado was terrified she would be separated from her daughter, and equally frightened she might be found by her abuser.” Read more: http://www.momsrising.org/blog/a-blog-carnival-celebrating-our-common-humanity-we-belong-together-goes-to-alabama/#ixzz2kftitvh1
