Elements of proposed new Border Security:

Escalates the enforcement budget from $4.5 billion to $46 billion.
Doubles the number of border patrol officers from 20,000 to 40,000.
Requires construction of an additional 700 miles of double border fencing, waiving environmental protections and Indigenous communities’ rights regarding wall construction.
Expands drone and other forms of surveillance through a 24 hour “virtual fence.”
Makes the E-verify system obligatory for all employers.

We want a fair & just immigration reform that reflects our communities’ values of justice & human rights:

Reunite families and keep families together.

Demilitarize the U.S.-Mexico border
Offer a rapid and affordable pathway to citizenship for all unauthorized immigrants.
Protect the labor rights of both immigrant and U.S. workers.
Guarantee due process and protect the civil and human rights of all immigrants.
End enforcement practices that criminalize migrants because of their status.
Offer public services, including health care, to immigrants regardless of status.
