Gloria La Riva on Immigration

Party for Socialism and Liberation nominee for President

 


Abolish all anti-immigrant laws, shut down ICE

Abolish all anti-immigrant laws. Stop the raids and deportations and demonization of immigrants. Shut down ICE and the concentration camps and reunite families. The government's war on immigrants must end. The border wall must be dismantled. Amnesty and citizenship for those without documents. Full rights for all!

Full citizenship rights upon six months residency

We defend the rights of all immigrants to education, health care, and full civil and legal rights and call for an unconditional amnesty program for all undocumented people. We oppose the imposition of any fees on those receiving amnesty. We call for full citizenship rights upon demonstrating residency for six months.

For 8 days accompanied 2018 refugee caravan to reach US

Gloria has been active in the struggle for immigrant rights. In November 2018, she accompanied the refugee caravan of 7,000 Hondurans, Salvadoran and Guatemalans for eight days in their arduous march through Mexico to reach the United States. In the early 1990s, she was the initiator of the Farmworkers Emergency Relief campaign, following a disastrous freeze that left tens of thousands of Central Valley agricultural workers with no income.

Protect full rights of undocumented immigrants

The moderator asked which civil liberties each of the candidates would want to take a role in protecting. “I am for full rights of immigrants, the undocumented,” said La Riva. “As long as such a large segment of the working class is oppressed, how can we expect to improve conditions?”

Full rights and equality for all undocumented immigrants

All undocumented immigrants and residents in the United States should have full rights and equality now. That means equal wages, benefits, union rights, voting rights, and access to free, quality education, housing and health care. The government’s war on immigrants must end. Racist home and job raids must be stopped and concentration camp-style detention centers must be dismantled. The border wall must be dismantled.
