Affirm the work of the Dominican Immigration Committee;
Collaborate with other organizations and Dominican groups from North and South America.

Things you can do:

Recognize that the issue of Immigration in the United States is linked to the complexity of low wage or non-existent jobs in other countries, in trade agreements that are unfair to developing coutries and the movement of peoples searching for a living wage and better life.

Keep adovcating with US legislators to address the Immigration issues in the United States. The Congress most likely not address this issue again in 2008.
