Views:303|Rating:5.00|View Time:3:47Minutes|Likes:14|Dislikes:0 We are pleased to celebrate the successful launching of the CMSC’s Campaign to Restore DACA’s Advance Parole in Washington, D.C. last week, with a team of 20 DACA recipients from across the country ! ! !
Through several advocacy activities, we brought about an unprecedented awareness on the importance for the restoration of Advance Parole for DACA recipients, solidified a network of Dreamers and support organizations, and returned energized with an action plan for the rest of the year.
On Tuesday January 15, 2019, the CMSC and Rep. Alan Lowenthal hosted a widely covered and attended informational seminar on Advance Parole at the U.S. Capitol, when we were able to share several heartbreaking human stories and how the denial of Advance Parole has been devastating to Dreamers.
In addition to the seminar, our delegation secured numerous appointments with congressional immigration staff advisors to solicit support and acquire more signatures on the letter initiated by Reps. Alan Lowenthal and Nanette Barragán, which was sent to Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen on December 11, 2018, requesting her agreement to restore Advance Parole authorization for Dreamers.
As a result of the groups leadership we were able to secure 25-30 more signatures, and also to initiate a letter from the Senate to be introduced by California senators Kamala Harris and Dianne Feinstein.
We also secured local community support through the screenings of the CMSC’s Advance Parole documentary by Lidieth Arevalo at Luther Place Memorial Church, and Rocio by Dario Guerrero at the Mexican Cultural Institute, which provided each audience an insight of how grim it can be for Dreamers and DACA recipients’ families who are not allowed to leave the country for humanitarian reasons due the suspension of Advance Parole.
Our next step is to call for a congressional hearing on the denial of DACA’s Advance Parole and to return to Washington, D.C. this Spring, to once again mobilize and continue to share our human stories on how the USCIS’ suspension of Advance Parole impacts upon our lives on a daily basis.
We will continue to seek endorsements from organizations that support DACA and undocumented immigrants, raise funds to make a stronger impact and come together with national leaders to fight for the restoration of Advance Parole.
The California-Mexico Studies Center would like to thank all the individual donors and major sponsors who made the launching of the Campaign to Restore DACA’s Advance Parole possible.

(AP) — The lone surviving Ku Klux Klansman imprisoned for killing four black girls in a church bombing in 1963 will remain behind bars after Alabama’s parole board heeded the victims’ families Wednesday and refused an early release. The board rejected parole for Thomas Edwin Blanton Jr., 78, who has served 15 years of a life term for being part of a group of Klansmen who planted a bomb outside Birmingham’s 16th Street Baptist Church during the civil rights movement. Lisa McNair, a sister of bombing victim Denise McNair, was relieved by the decision.

(AP) — Alabama’s parole board decided Wednesday against freeing a one-time Ku Klux Klansman convicted in a church bombing that killed four black girls more than 50 years ago. The decision to keep Thomas Edwin Blanton Jr., 78, imprisoned was met with applause at the hearing. Relatives of three of the slain girls spoke against Blanton’s release during the hearing. “Justice is served,” Lisa McNair, sister of bombing victim Denise McNair, said afterward. Blanton is the last surviving KKK member convicted of murder in the bombing of Birmingham’s 16th Street Baptist Church.
