Abolish all anti-immigrant laws, shut down ICE

Don't militarize the US-Mexico border; freely cross instead
The Socialist Party works to build a world in which everyone will be able to freely move across borders, to visit and to live wherever they choose. We recognize the central role global capitalism plays in forcing the immigration of people from the less
developed to the more industrialized countries, often leading to further economic and social injustice.

Full rights and equality for all undocumented immigrants
All undocumented immigrants and residents in the United States should have full rights and equality now. That means equal wages, benefits, union rights, voting rights, and access to free, quality education, housing and health care.
The government's war on immigrants must end. Racist home and job raids must be stopped and concentration camp-style detention centers must be dismantled. The border wall must be dismantled.

- give equal rights to all immigrants and recognize their presence in large part is due to unfair US economic policies toward their countries, or bad human conditions.
give sanctuary to illegal immigrants in the US, full social services
- impact immigration influx not with walls or guns or threats of imprisonment, but with fairer policies toward all other countries
- oppose English as the only official language
Amnesty for immigrants; grant them full rights
We defend the rights of immigrants to housing, education, health care, jobs, and civil, legal, and political rights.
We call for an unconditional amnesty program for undocumented people who should be accorded the same civil rights
that other members of society possess.
