Immigrant Solidarity March NYC 4-1-06

Solidarity March for Legalization for all
Undocumented Immigrants
Saturday, April 1—11:00 AM

WHAT: The latest developments in Senate Judiciary Committee give some hope to the more than 12 million undocumented immigrants in the United States that they will be able to legalize their status. Of course, we will have to see the final version of their bill for comprehensive immigration reform to fully understand its benefits and implications. However, the Senate will debate this bill alongside the more sinister House Bill 4437. As you know, HR-4437, already passed by House of Representatives, seeks to criminalize undocumented immigrants and anyone who would assist, harbor or transport them, essentially making you and me into criminals under federal law. We must anticipate the conflicts that will arise in this debate, and be vocal in our opposition to the rise of a dangerous compromise between the two pieces of legislation. We must organize to publicly express our support for legalization for undocumented immigrants and our fervent opposition to HR-4437.

It is time to come together to strengthen our community against the anti-immigrant trend with one voice, one plan, one action.

We invite you and your friends, family, and associates to attend our Solidarity March for Legalization for all Undocumented Immigrants, on Saturday, April 1, 2006, beginning at 11:00 AM. The march will proceed from Cadman Plaza in Brooklyn across the Brooklyn Bridge, and will terminate in a rally at 26 Federal Plaza.
