Celebrating international human rights, immigrants in Iowa show their knowledge of human rights through a small contest put forth by Sandra Sanchez (IVP director) in radio La Reina. Sandra was proud that five out of five answered the questions correctly! Now she wonders, would the average American know their rights that well?
Sandra Sanchez leads an “Immigration 101” workshop.
[The following letter was written to the City Council of Grimes, Iowa by Sandra Sanchez, AFSC Iowa Immigrants Voice Program Director.]
I am writing to express my opposition to the opening of a new facility for purposes of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detention in the City of Grimes. I am afraid that it will bring negative attention to the City of Grimes in two ways: increasing cases of racial profiling, and making of this detention facility the main face of the city. Is that what you want for Grimes?
The NC Immigrant Rights Program Monthly E-Newsletter serves as a vehicle for Quaker allies and recent immigrant/refugee constituents living in North Carolina to stay informed and involved with AFSC and immigrant rights-related actions in the state.
This is the English version of a new booklet produced by AFSC staff in North Carolina and collaborators for immigrants, including rights at home, in the car, at work and in detention. Most of the information should apply to people across the U.S., but the phone numbers are NC specific.
Una nueva libreta en español para inmigrantes, escrita por personal de AFSC en Carolina del Norte con ayuda de otras personas, que describe los derechos de usted en la casa, en el carro, en el trabajo y mientras permanece detenido(a). La mayoría de la información aplicará a personas en todos los Estados Unidos, pero los números de teléfono sólo son para las personas en Carolina del Norte.

MADBURY, NEW HAMPSHIRE --- A celebration of Indonesian Independence Day at the Madbury Town Hall on August 13 included an opportunity for members of the region’s Indonesian community to learn about their rights and also enabled members of the wider community to learn how it came to pass that the Dover, New Hampshire area became home to more than a thousand Indonesian immigrants.
