BAMN CALL TO ACTION to Fight for Full Citizenship Rights for All
And that All School Districts Recognize the Cesar Chavez Holiday
(This is a solidarity march with the national immigrant rights march on April 10 in Washington D.C.)

• Pass the FEDERAL DREAM ACT NOW!
• Replace partial probationary status with full citizenship rights for all people who live here, go to school here, work here, and otherwise contribute to this society. Latina/o, black, Asian, Arab, Native American, white, immigrants with and without papers–we are ALL Americans.
• Open the borders—give people the same rights that NAFTA provides to the corporations for unrestricted passage across borders.
• No restrictions to gaining citizenship should be placed on young people brought by their parents.
• No fines for the millions of people without papers who are here now. No more deportations.
• Clear, definite timelines should be set for people to gain citizenship—not indefinite probation.

We (Indigenous community) are using the word Migrant not immigrant because we did not cross the borders the borders crossed us. The Latino or Hispanic are Natives or Indigenous peoples as Indian country goes from the Arctic Circle to the tip of Chile. We say "Who are you calling Immigrant, Pilgrim"
