Dear friends and partners for immigrant rights:

Thanks to everyone who has joined the Open Letter to President Barack Obama. Over 3,000 people from all over the country have signed the letter to urge our new President to move swiftly to end immigration raids, suspend detentions and deportations, and commit to fair and just immigration policies and practices.

The deadline for signatures to the letter has been extended to Friday, Jan. 23 at midnight, Pacific Time, so if you haven't signed the letter yet, you can still do so here. This is also your chance to ask your friends, family, co-workers and colleagues to read and sign the letter -- so please forward this message!

After the moving Inauguration that many of us witnessed in this country and around the world, we are all eager to move forward. As President Obama said in his inaugural address, the time has come " choose our better history." This letter and other initiatives in the coming weeks and months are just initial steps towards writing that "better history" for all of us, including immigrant communities around the country.

On Tuesday, January 27, NNIRR will formally release the letter to the President and will convene a tele-media conference featuring the the voices and stories of immigrants whose lives are in turmoil due to unfair and even brutal treatment by immigration enforcement authorities. [The letter and and all its signatures will be made available for download from NNIRR's website ( on that date]. To read today's press release, click here.

In the coming days we will also be finalizing plans to strengthen our call for justice and bring our message to Washington. If you would like to receive further updates, learn more about our national action days in DC (tentatively, before the end of March) and other initiatives, be sure to join our email list. Better yet, consider becoming a member of the National Network so that we can continue to raise our voices together.

Thank you again for your support!


P.S. In these tough times, we can use and value your financial support. Please take a moment to contribute what you can to help us organize for change.


NNIRR would like to stay in touch with you!

DEADLINE TODAY: Friday, January 23rd (Friday). Sign now!



We believe we have an opportunity -- indeed a mandate -- to demand no less than an end to the cycle of punishment and abuse against immigrant communities: stopping raids and suspending detentions and deportations is not only a part of our agenda for immigration reform, it is a pre-requisite for a genuine, rights-based immigration policy. Join our “Open Letter” to President Barack Obama, to be released on January 27th.


INVITACIÓN A FIRMAR: UNA CARTA ABIERTA AL PRESIDENTE BARACK OBAMA: Tome acción para proteger a los derechos humanos, la seguridad y el bien estar de todas las comunidades de inmigrantes!


Creemos que tenemos una oportunidad – en verdad, un mandato – para exigir nada menos que el cese al ciclo de castigo y abusos contra comunidades inmigrantes: poniendo alto a las redadas y suspendiendo las detenciones y deportaciones no es sólo parte de nuestra agenda para la reforma migratoria, es un pre-requisito para una política migratoria genuina que está basada en los derechos. Únase a nuestra “Carta Abierta” al Presidente Barack Obama, que será emitida el 27 de enero.
