Immigrant Rights

We work to educate scholars, activists, and the general public about the history and current reality of immigrants in the Americas, most especially in the United States. We believe it is essential to understand the historical forces that have created the situations that propel people to leave their homes and travel—usually under arduous and life-threatening conditions—to seek refuge and a dignified, productive, and safe life in a new country. We seek to mobilize people to take action in support of immigrants' human rights and for a just, humane immigration policy.We condemn all U.S. government policies that fail to welcome asylum seekers and refugees to the United States. We demand the U.S. government provide them with the resources they need to construct a healthy, productive, and fulfilling life in the United States.
