The Obama Legacy Project is a campaign led by Presente.org in partnership with grassroots and human rights organizations and their allies nationwide who want to raise awareness about President Obama’s legacy on immigration. Until now policies pursued by his administration have devastated and shattered Latino families and communities across the country in many different ways: mass racial profiling and S-COMM, immigrant prisons, deportations and unchecked border patrol violence, and increased militarization. We know he has the power to shift the course of this trajectory.
Our Demands for President Obama:
- End all deportations, the first step.
- Hold a summit and personally meet with immigrant families torn apart by deportations during your tenure.
- Expand deferred departures to all DREAM Act-eligible youth, their parents, and all undocumented immigrants until Congress takes action on reform.
- Abolish the “Secure Communities” program (S-COMM), which has resulted in rampant and disproportionate racial profiling of latinos and immigrants of color.
