CIR Now is a grassroots campaign for immigration reform. We mobilize community to hold those opposed to reform accountable for the harm they are doing. Organizing the people's representative power or vote is how we settle differences by democratic process. People power should remove those opposed to reform from Congress until a supermajority in favor remains. This is essential to passing major bills like CIR through the U.S. Senate.
Comprehensive immigration reform can only pass with the help of allies. We support others with their platform priorities, like we want their support in ours. We work with diverse groups also interested in organizing the people's community, legislative, and electoral power.
"Progressives believe it is long past time to provide a roadmap to citizenship for the millions of undocumented workers, caregivers, students, and children who are an essential part of our economy and of the fabric of our nation." - from Platform For Progress: Immigration subsection
"Migrants contribute greatly to our economy and society. The problem is businesses that exploit this workforce pay less in wages while pushing health care, education, and other costs to the rest of us." - from Comprehensive Immigration Reform Now
"We should not make ourselves dependent on obscure US Senate rule change or executive action for our liberation. In our republic, changes to law are decided by Congress or, when that fails, the removal of those opposed and replacement with a pro-reform supermajority. We need organizers committed to building great progressive coalitions capable of electing super majorities to congress for immigration reform." - from CIR Now Call to Action
