An immigrant rights group released a "Bill of Rights" with a list of demands for the millions of immigrants living in the U.S. illegally.
The 10-item list of demands — proposed by the pro-amnesty nonprofit group United We Stay — calls for health care, in-state college tuition rates, and an end to deportation for “all law-abiding undocumented Americans,” The Washington Times reported on Nov. 5.
“We know we have human rights, even though our very presence is deemed illegal and our existence alien," the group said in a statement. "Now we have our own Bill of Rights and we want it to be the framework for every immigration decision going forward from the local to the national level."
The Bill of Rights rejects Congress’ focus on building a wall while simultaneously dismissing airline security crackdowns, WND reports. It also calls for less “chest-thumping rhetoric.”
“Since Congress refuses to act, it’s time we take matters into our own hands," United We Stay member Marcelino Jones writes in the document. "Our Undocumented Americans’ Bill of Rights is a good start. Instead of making impregnable border security the beginning and end of all immigration discussions, let’s find a real roadmap forward."
The document's 10 listed rights also include citizenship rights, wage equality, and protection for illegal immigrants who report a crime they witnessed.
