Immigration Reform

Virginia Community Organizations Launch Statewide Campaign for Real Immigration Reform


We believe that true reform should:
  • Offer a short and direct path to citizenship for all aspiring citizens already in the United States;
  • Respect the dignity of every individual and end the mass detention and deportation of immigrants;
  • Reunite and strengthen families through the elimination of immigration backlogs;
  • Build trust between immigrant communities and local police by limiting state and local enforcement of federal immigration law;
  • Strengthen our economy by protecting workers’ rights, and meeting Virginia’s need for a trained workforce by providing access to education for all; and,
  • Honor our history as a nation of immigrants by welcoming, celebrating, and promoting the full economic and political integration of this most recent generation of immigrants.
