On November 20th, President Obama announced the implementation of “Administrative Relief” for immigrant families meeting certain conditions.
The MinKwon Center for Community Action welcomes this announcement and its implications for our communities, but we remain deeply concerned about the millions who remain excluded.
MinKwon has advocated for the rights and protection of immigrant families for more than 30 years. We have participated in countless rallies and petition drives, defended thousands of immigrants from abuses at the polls and in the workplace, and even fasted and gotten arrested as part of civil disobedience actions to stop the separation of families.
Our determination for this work has only increased. And the need for our services has never been more critical. Can we count on you, our important supporters, to help us?
You are the lifeline for a vulnerable community who urgently needs MinKwon’s legal services. Our track record shows that we can and will bring this assistance to our community – we did it when Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals was announced in 2012 and we will do it again with Obama’s “Administrative Relief” of 2014.
