Quotes

"Obama, you know that the backbone of this country are undocumented workers," Molina said in Spanish. "As immigrant families we are fighters, we work hard to find a better life."
...As Marisa Franco of the National Day Laborer Organizing Network wrote at MSNBC.com, "When Latino and immigrant constituencies see the case of Michael Brown, we should recognize this problem well." She's right. Hispanics, along with African Americans, share the struggle for full equality under the law
...Essentially, the quote that best sums up Presidential authority in the context of immigration is a Supreme Court quote from Heckler v Chaney : "an agency's decision not to prosecute or enforce, whether through civil or criminal process, is a decision generally committed to an agency's absolute discretion."
"Day laborers refuse to be objectified by those who exploit them and their circumstances. Americans need to see day laborers standing on street corners not just as workers or as immigrants but also as parents, grandmothers, sons or daughters, as artists and songwriters, and most of all, as human beings." -- Pablo Alvarado, NDLON Executive Director
