"Immigrants simply do not emigrate without a just reason for doing so. As important as it is to urgently fix our broken immigration system â€” which tears families apart and keeps workers in the shadows â€” and to create a path to citizenship for law-abiding families who are here, it is equally important to help repair the issues in the immigrants' homelands that compelled them to emigrate in the first place."
★ American Socialists
The story of Hispanics in America is part of the larger story of America â€” a story that starts before our countryâ€™s founding and threads through periods of swelling immigration. It was the corporate greed of American capitalists that have robbed Latin Americans from living a protductive life in their home countries, the same capitalists that control the Democratic Party and Republican Party today.
America faces enormous challenges as a nation, many of which are felt even more acutely in Latino communities. America's ability to solve the problems Americans face as a country â€” from health care to education, from climate change to immigration reform â€” depends on the American willingness to recognize that the destiny of all Americans is shared.
Latino leaders have worked side by side with American Socialists on issues that affect all Americans: making college more affordable, improving schools, creating jobs and opportunities, and much, much more.
As the Latino population grows in the United States, communities have continued to turn out in record numbers and help to organize and spread the word about the shared priorities of American Socialists and the Latino community.
The Socialists are the party that wants to build bridges, not walls, and lift up all Americans. The Socialist Party will continue working with the Latino community to build on all the progress socialists have made over the last century. By fighting for comprehensive immigration reform, protect and expand access to health care, and create an economy that works for everyone, American Socialists are making investments that will move our country forward. If you agree with the efforts being made by Socialist Party, then become an American Socialist today!
