According to LULAC (the League of United Latin American Citizens), there will be a huge multi-city rally for immigrants' rights across America on April 10.
"Comprehensive immigration reform must include an earned adjustment for immigrants currently working in the United States; create legal channels for future flows of immigrant workers; and reduce the vast backlogs in family-sponsored immigration," said LULAC National President Hector M. Flores, "There is a bipartisan comprehensive immigration bill that offers effective enforcement, strengthens borders, and encourages people to come out of the shadows by offering a path to permanent residency."
This earned legalization legislation is not amnesty because under the provisions of this legislation, an undocumented worker will have to pay a $2,000 fine, undergo a background check, pay any back taxes, learn English, enroll in civic education, remain employed for six years, and then, at the end of those six years, go to the back of the line to apply for legal permanent resident (LPR) status.
The cities participating in the April 10th event include: Austin, Dallas, Tucson, Little Rock, Santa Ana, San Jose, Mid-Wilshire, Long Beach, East Los Angeles, Riverside, San Fernando Valley, Bakersfield, Fresno, San Diego, Los Angeles, Colorado Springs, Grand Junction, Telluride, Ft. Lauderdale, Ft. Mears, Homestead, Lake Worth, Miami, Pensacola, Chicago, Lexington, Boston, Detroit, Kansas City, Omaha, Las Cruces, Newark, New York, Raleigh, Cincinnati, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, El Paso, Houston, San Antonio, Washington, DC, and Milwaukee.
