DAR #11 Lauren Basile SOC 215 – 002 12/4/19 READING CITATION: Hana Brown and Jennifer A. Jones. 2016. “Immigrant Rights are Civil Rights.”1.MAIN POINTS: •The Mississippi Immigrant Rights Alliance (MIRA) values the right in improving laws of immigration and for them to stop gruesomely affecting not only immigrants but people of color who work. •People such as Chandler the MIRA director, organized different marches, press conferences, and lobbying sessions with legislators to address the growing and hurtful problem of rights towards immigrants (Brown and Jones 2016:35). •One of the main meaningful goals of the MIRA is to overthrow the anti-immigrant laws and rightfully so, they have been accomplishing that for close to fifteen years. •Those who continue to be interested in the ways of abolishing anti immigrants’ laws should also be aware of the different coalitions behind this all and how they contribute positively or even negatively.
