The California Opportunity and Prosperity Act will provide undocumented immigrants in California with the opportunity to live and work legally in the state without fear of deportation. In order to qualify, people must have lived in the state of California for four years, have no criminal record, pay a fee to administer the program, and learn English.
In the past year, we have seen state legislation that continue to criminalize and dehumanize the immigrant community. It is time to turn the tide around and provide the undocumented community with the opportunity to work without worrying if they will come home to their families that night. As a state with one of the largest immigrant populations, California should be at the forefront of progressive immigration policies and pass the California Opportunity and Prosperity Act.
Sign the petition and tell the California State Assembly to pass COPA now!
