Socialist Party on Immigration

Socialist Party Platform

 


Abolish all anti-immigrant laws, shut down ICE

Abolish all anti-immigrant laws. Stop the raids and deportations and demonization of immigrants. Shut down ICE and the concentration camps and reunite families. The government's war on immigrants must end. The border wall must be dismantled. Amnesty and citizenship for those without documents. Full rights for all!

Full citizenship rights upon six months residency

We defend the rights of all immigrants to education, health care, and full civil and legal rights and call for an unconditional amnesty program for all undocumented people. We oppose the imposition of any fees on those receiving amnesty. We call for full citizenship rights upon demonstrating residency for six months.

Don't militarize the US-Mexico border; freely cross instead

The Socialist Party works to build a world in which everyone will be able to freely move across borders, to visit and to live wherever they choose. We recognize the central role global capitalism plays in forcing the immigration of people from the less developed to the more industrialized countries, often leading to further economic and social injustice.

End the militarization of the US/Mexican border

The Socialist Party calls for an end to the militarization of the US/Mexican border, an end to police raids of immigrants, and we defend the rights of all immigrants to education, health care, & full civil and legal rights. We call for an unconditional amnesty program for all undocumented people, and full citizenship rights upon demonstrating residency for six months.

Full rights and equality for all undocumented immigrants

All undocumented immigrants and residents in the United States should have full rights and equality now. That means equal wages, benefits, union rights, voting rights, and access to free, quality education, housing and health care. The government's war on immigrants must end. Racist home and job raids must be stopped and concentration camp-style detention centers must be dismantled. The border wall must be dismantled.

Amnesty for immigrants; grant them full rights

We defend the rights of immigrants to housing, education, health care, jobs, and civil, legal, and political rights.

We call for an unconditional amnesty program for undocumented people who should be accorded the same civil rights that other members of society possess.
