From the Oregon Democrat Party official website:
WHEREAS, in our opinion, several new federal laws, regulations and executive orders issued since September 11, 2001, including the adoption of certain provisions of the U.S.A. P.A.T.R.I.O.T. Act (Public Law 107-56, hereafter UPA) and the Homeland Security Act (Public Law 107-296) now threaten principal tenets of our platform, as well as our constitutional rights and liberties, including
Driving a wedge between immigrant communities and the police that protect them by encouraging involvement of state and local police in enforcement of federal immigration law (Public Law 107-296, Title VIII, Subtitle I: Homeland Security Information Sharing Act; Department of Justice Legal Opinion April 10,
So they oppose police being allowed to inquire about immigration status because that would drive a "wedge" between the police and the... criminals.
We meet up with our farm worker and immigrant allies for a march into Woodburn to highlight the state of emergency for workers rights, economic justice, and immigrant rights. Speakers will share their stories of immigration and the need for fair immigration reform with a clear path to citizenship. Workers will highlight their struggles and successes in this long road towards beloved community where the rights and dignity of all people are respected. That evening we will gather for a community dinner hosted by CAUSA and PCUN, the farm worker union. The next morning the Walk will stop by the fields to rally with workers for fair wages and working conditions.
From a DPO calendar, they meet with PCUN and they want a "path to citizenship" which normal people call "amnesty."
You democrats out there who think this is an important issue... it might be time to vote Republican in Oregon.
