TIM, The Immigrant Experience

The Immigrant Magazine stands in solidarity with the call for February 16 to be “A Day Without Immigrants” #DayWithoutImmigrants, #UnDiaSinInmigrantes. We stand with our undocumented, illegal, DACA, DAPA, queer and Muslim immigrant communities who despite their struggles and challenges manage to contribute enormously to the strength of the USA.

#DayWithoutImmigrants, calls for immigrants to boycott businesses and jobs to show the impact of their economic contributions to the country.

Today we remember the contributions of hard working people from foreign places have enhanced this country in so many ways
