Muslim & Latino Alliance On Immigration Rights Outreach Begins

 WASHINGTON, DC - The failure of the United States to embrace a comprehensive immigration policy has caused multiple forms of displacement and even oppression for countless people in America.  No community has been more greatly impacted by this issue than the Muslim and Hispanic community.  Families have been separated as a result of deportation; profiling is rampant; documented and legal immigrants have been subjected to harassment, imprisonment and even violence; and undocumented workers contributing vital support to the US economy are unsure about their future in the United States or a certain path to permanent residency or citizenship. 

MAS Freedom believes that immigration reform should balance the need for compliance with the law and the well being of immigrant workers and their families.  We call for a fair and human immigration policy that does not target or demonize individuals and families who contribute valuable work and service to our economy and our society. 

A key tactical approach to ameliorating the injustice and prejudices that immigrants face is by building a strong coalition between the Muslim and Latino community on immigrant rights.  MAS Freedom encourages our MAS chapters, members, other Muslim organizations and mosques to reach out to credible immigrant right organizations within the Latino community as well as organizations like Interfaith Workers Justice.  Building a coalition based on integrity and principles of cooperation could go a long way in addressing social and economic justice issues and the political empowerment of both communities. We encourage the American Muslim community to reach out, not only to the Latino community concerning immigration issues but also to other ethnic communities like the African American community and their civil rights experiences. History has shown that the success of minorities in America hinge upon their ability to move beyond isolation and build tactical alliances with other minority groups.

If your mosque or community would like to increase your coalition/outreach skill sets, click here to review the available MAS Freedom workshops and training courses.
