A million ‘Know Your Rights’ cards

As the Minnesota bishops were announcing Immigration Sunday for Jan. 4 in the state, a group of church and immigrant-rights organizations in the Los Angeles area are distributing 1 million “Know Your Rights” cards this week to immigrants who live in fear of workplace raids and separation from their families.

Sized like a business card, the “Know Your Rights” cards come in seven languages — English, Spanish, Mandarin Chinese, Arabic, Korean, Tagalog and Vietnamese — and describe basic rights and how to act on those rights when needed.

“We want our immigrant brothers and sisters to know that we continue to stand in solidarity with them and will continue to do what we can to help them during these difficult times on the road to true reform of our broken immigration system,” said Auxiliary Bishop Oscar A. Solis of Los Angeles. Our Lady Queen of Angels Church in Los Angeles hosted the press conference announcing the action.
