Join ¡HICA! in Supporting Comprehensive Immigration Reform
The Hispanic Interest Coalition of Alabama (¡HICA!) urges the speedy enactment of comprehensive immigration reform that will provide both a reasonable, affordable path to legalization and law enforcement measures that strengthen and protect communities while upholding justice, safety, and human rights. In line with our commitment to strengthening families and educating communities, ¡HICA! strongly believes that family unity and educational opportunity should be key components of any comprehensive immigration reform bill. As the dialogue around immigration reform continues on national and local levels, ¡HICA! calls for the respect and celebration of the contributions of immigrants in our communities.
¡HICA! supports the following principles set forth by the National Council of La Raza for comprehensive immigration reform:
Following the guidance of Alabama’s Hispanic community, ¡HICA! will collaborate with its local, regional and national partners to advocate for a comprehensive immigration reform package that meets the community’s needs.
