Take action now:

Nine Latin American consulates in New York area join to push immigration agenda inside U.S.

The New York-area consulates from nine Latin America countries have joined forces in an effort called the "Coalition of Latin American Consulates in New York." From this:

...the group plans to work together on issues they consider common to their immigrant populations _ from holding informational "consular fairs" and public health screenings to meeting as a group with U.S. immigration officials. The group's first event will be a consular fair to be held this Saturday at the Mexican community center Casa Puebla in Harrison, N.J... The consular coalition also hopes to present a more united front in the U.S. immigration debate _ not by taking a political position, but by working to defend immigrant communities many feel have been vilified by the tone of the debate...

Casa Puebla was also where the Mexican consulate recently handed out Matricula Consular ID cards.

Mexico is, of course, one of the countries involved. The others are: Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Peru, the Dominican Republic and Uruguay.

"...The consular coalition also hopes to present a more united front in the U.S. immigration debate _ not by taking a political position, but by working to defend immigrant communities many feel have been vilified by the tone of the debate..." Not "taking a political position" even though they're directly engaged in advocacy? Riiiiiiiiiiiight. Oooops, now that I've also quoted from the AP story, should I pay some kind of secondary-user fee? Let me know if I need to take a number in the AP cashier's waiting line.
