Take Action: Support Permanent Residency for Central Americans!
On Monday, January 30, 2012, more than 20 organizations in 10 states launched the national campaign for permanent residence for Central Americans who have been legally living and working in the United States for over a decade but continue to have temporary status.
After having legally lived and worked here for over a decade, having paid fees to the government to maintain their status, having paid taxes, having undergone background checks, having done everything else required by the law and most importantly having come forward and registered in a conditional program when the US government gave the opportunity to those undocumented to do so, we believe they have earned the opportunity to become a lawful permanent resident. In addition, they have demonstrated to be individuals of good moral character every time they have renewed their status.
The campaign is called Residency Now. Check it out here: residencynow.org
