MARCHA MIGRANTE III
MAPA and Hermandad Mexicana Latinoamericana endorse the MARCHA MIGRANTE III, the third year of unprecedented commitment by Border Angels/Gente Unida, led by Enrique Morones to share the human story of the immigrant communities to other communities far and wide throughout the United States. Only by including broader circles of humanity in the struggle to reform our current unjust and unfair immigration system will we ever fathom the prospect of success in our endeavors. Join us in endorsing the MARCHA MIGRANTE III.
