As immigration advocates have presented many different reasons for the
need for better immigration reform, one that has become increasingly prominent
is that of civil rights. The 11 million undocumented immigrants, who live
in the US currently, have no legal protection. Many see immigration reform
as a matter of basic civil rights for these individuals. Recently, some
prominent African-American community leaders have begun speaking out for
the immigrant community, seeing it as a part of their own struggle.
Leaders such as Reverend Al Sharpton have taken a stand for communities
across the nation that he thinks are enduring discrimination similar to
that of African-Americans in past decades. At a rally in 2012, Sharpton
declared that he would stand with the immigrant community to see the repeal
of current immigration laws. Along with Representative Steven Horsford
of Nevada, he has said that they would help those who are confronting
the injustice of the immigration system. In addition, the NAACP has protested
Arizona's immigration laws, because they supposedly encourage racial
profiling by the police. One activist noted that the current laws don't
punish people for what they are doing, but who they are, so therefore
it is an infringement of civil rights.
