Video: Congressman Raul Grijalva on Immigration Rights

Congressman Raul Grijalva of Arizona’s 7th Congressional District delivers an inspiring message underscoring the importance of immigration reform in this video, which he created for our 25th Anniversary celebration on March 14, 2011. Xenophobia, he explains, weakens and violates the American dream. The immigration debate has divided our nation for years — from the Irish Anti-Settlement Act to the Alien Sedition Act to the Chinese Exclusion Act, not to mention today’s Anti-Hispanic sentiment. We cannot let this attitude persist. Instead, we must commit to protect immigrants with our legal rights and integrate them into our communities. Moving away from a militaristic border policy toward one based on love and caring is a first step — let’s make it happen by raising awareness of the Network of Spiritual Progressives’ Global Marshall Plan!
