FIRM wants civil disobedience to get amnesty? (CCC, Casa de Maryland, NYIC, OneAmerica)

COVID-19 Response

Like everyone else, we urge you to wash your hands and engage in social distancing.

Unlike everyone else, we urge you to also help with this smart plan to get more tests, ventilators, and PPE. Everyone can do that plan right now, at home, in just 15 minutes.

If enough people help with the plan we can save lives. Take time out now and help get more desperately-needed supplies.

Per this unconfirmed report, a conference call was held on the 18th in which various pro-illegal immigration groups called for civil disobedience in an attempt to get comprehensive immigration reform (aka amnesty).

The groups named are: Fair Immigration Reform Movement, Center for Community Change, New York Immigration Coalition, Casa de Maryland, Churches United to Save and Heal, and OneAmerica:

On the call they said:

"We've marched, called and faxed. We've shown time and again that there's no bigger movement than ours. Still, our elected officials haven't delivered satisfactory progress on immigration reform. We won't be appeased with token gestures. We're stepping up the pressure. On this call we're going to go over the next steps, including civil disobedience, non-compliance and other acts of non-violent resistance in Los Angeles, New York, Seattle, Milwaukee, Washington, Baltimore and many more cities."

They specifically want a moratorium on the Secure Communities program.
