New Video Campaign seeks to reframe the immigration debate
The folks at Cuentame and Brave New Films have teamed up again to create several new videos that both expose the hate language of anti-immigration forces, but also to encourage the pro-immigration rights movement to not let the anti-immigration voices frame the debate.
Nativist, racist and fear-mongering hate groups are working hard to drive their narrative on immigration. For years now, anti-immigrant groups have successfully infused their message into the national immigration debate. Influencing local politicians and national figures – with the same talking points: “More punishment”, “Militarize the border”, “Massive deportations”, “More Enforcement.” This has resulted in dangerous policies that have led to flagrant violation of human rights.
It is time we put basic immigrant, human rights back in the forefront of our national values and priorities! Let Congress and the President know that to reform immigration they must prioritize “Immigrant rights before enforcement.”
Add your name and message – make sure your voice is heard! Here is one of the four videos that Cuentame and Brave New Films have created.
