Take action now: Take the Stop Amnesty Challenge.

It's up to you to block Obama's amnesty.

National Capital Immigration Coalition

Organizer of the September 7 Washington DC march together with the We Are America Alliance. Has also organized at least one other rally in DC. Appears closely associated with Casa de Maryland.

From ncic-metro.org/about.htm: In 2002, as part of the Reward Work Campaign whose goal was to highlight the need for a reform in our immigration laws and support legislation in Congress that would help in this agenda, a group of organizations and local unions in the Washington D.C. area, came together to plan a rally and lobby on October 9, 2002...

That page also lists Juan Carlos Ruiz as their "General Coordinator"

The NCIC August 31 press release says that their president is Jaime Contreras.

One of their members is Mexicans Without Borders (Virginia organizers say fervor for immigration rallies cools)

ncic-metro.org/media.htm lists their media contact as Kim Propeack with an email of media@ncic-metro.org. She's also the "Director of Community Organizing and Action Department" of Casa de Maryland.


The very interesting file ncic-metro.org/Reform.pdf has drawings of friendly, largely Latino "immigrants" being more or less oppressed by drawings of hostile Anglos, including one assumed to be James Sensenbrenner. It also has the rather interesting drawing of "Minutemen" at the link above. Where have you seen drawings like that before?

In that PDF they contrast what they support with HR4437 and with Hagel-Martinez:

...firmly opposes criminalizing undocumented men, women, and children.

...firmly opposes criminalizing people who provide assistance to and family members of undocumented people.

...opposes the Senate Bill because it divides immigrants up by the number of years of residence. We believe that this provision will divide families and will drive people further underground.

...believes that future workers must have full labor protection rights and a path to citizenship.

...believes that holding employers responsible for a broken immigration system is unfair and that worksite enforcement can only go hand-inhand with a legalization

...opposes the fence on the border and believes that this debate is steeped in deep anti-Latino beliefs.

...believes that America should be built on a spirit of diversity and welcoming the stranger. Many of the additional provisions will create a society built on fear of our neighbors and will create a less diverse community.

It also contains this interesting bit:

And you can participate! Every immigrant, even if not yet citizens, knows citizens and can do the important work of educating their citizen friends, family members, and coworkers about this issue. You can take responsibility to get those people to the polls. And, you can register voters at festivals. And, you can take off on election day to be in your neighborhood reminding people that they must vote.

I was unable to find a statement that you had to be a citizen to register voters, but some states (including Texas) require those who register voters to be deputized ( link).

Gutierrez unveils immigration "reform" bill principles at Washington DC rally (RI4A, CHC,NCIC,religious leaders) - 10/13/09

Earlier today, supporters of comprehensive immigration reform held a rally in Washington DC. Rep. Luis Gutierrez (Chair of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Immigration Task Force) laid out outlines of a bill he'll supposedly be introducing later this year. The specifics aren't known but it will be very lax and probably won't include the "symbolic gestures" from the bill he co-authored with Jeff...

Immigration march organizers have foreign links - 09/01/06

Many of those who attended the recent immigration marches are foreign citizens who are here illegally. But, it doesn't stop there. For instance, one rally organizer is a former Mexican consul general and another is an official with a Mexican political party. Not surprisingly, the MSM has barely mentioned such links. The reader is strongly encouraged to contact media sources and suggest that...
