FIRM/FIRM Action’s Values in Action
Americans support progressive changes to the current immigration system. In fact, a significant majority of Americans support the policies we are advocating. We are a country that understands our immigration laws are outdated and need repair.
We call on our elected champions to seize the momentum and work with us to create and actualize our new vision: One of exciting, progressive ideas that are truly transformational in moving the nation forward and living up to our highest ideals. Therefore we must:
Undo the damage. It is not enough to end family separations. Families torn apart by detention and deportation across the country must be reunited and made whole.Bring our deported loved ones home.
We need MORE not FEWER immigrants in America. America is a beacon of hope for those seeking to make better lives for themselves and their families. Our strength as a country has always been greater when we open the circle rather than close it. We need immigrants to continue building a country that can truly thrive–they contribute to our communities as our neighbors and coworkers, taxpayers and innovators.
Immigrant workers contribute to America’s economic well- being and must qualify for labor protections, including from wage theft and wage and hour laws.
Celebrate and expand the road to full citizenship. Immigrants make us stronger and more diverse. For many seeking a life here, the roadmap to citizenship is already generational. We must expand the roadmap to citizenship to ensure that it is realistic, achievable and fair for all families.
