Time for Immigration Reform
CTA and NEA are part of a broad coalition of unions and community-based organizations calling for comprehensive immigration reform as Congress gets ready to debate the issue. As educators, we have witnessed for far too long the impact of the nation's current broken system on our students, their families and our communities.As outlined in CTA policy
, we need an immigration system that values keeping families together, provides a path to citizenship for those aspiring Americans who are working in our communities and expands the Dream Act
to ensure all students have an opportunity for higher education.
On April 10, CTA and NEA will participate in the national rally
for immigration reform in Washington, DC.
