Migrant Students United joined Migrant Rights Network and allies on March 20th, 2022 @12 pm at 3906 E Hastings St, MP Terry Beech's office, to mark the International Day Against Racism and to call on the Prime Minister to do the right thing. We want to live in a fair society with equal rights for all, and the only way that can happen is if everyone in the country has full and permanent immigration status. Without permanent resident status, migrants can’t protect ourselves against rising racism.
There are over 1.6 million migrants without permanent residency already in the country. Most of them are doing essential jobs and continued to work even in the pandemic. Migrants sustain all of us. Ensuring permanent resident status for everyone will ensure more prosperity and support for everyone.
Migrants need permanent resident status to assert any other rights that they have. We call on PM Trudeau and all political parties to work together to ensure Status for All!
