Summary At the LLRT

As we, the Latino and Latina Roundtable, summarized at our end-of-year celebration today, we have been consistent for quite some time now in seeing no contradiction between taking up local issues (such as checkpoints and organizing against racial profiling programs such as Secure Communities), fighting on a state level for policies such as driver’s licenses and the Trust Act, while organizing on a national level against enforcement policies that only serve to racially profile our communities – and “fighting together for” policies that will stop deportations, promote a speedy process to legalization — with no expansion of temporary guest worker (bracero) programs and with labor law protections. We have been successfully principled and consistent without having to do, as this article relates, “supporting the pouring of money into enforcement efforts” and without “settling for the punitive, enforcement-first proposals on offer in Washington.”
