Immigrant Rights and the Thirteenth Amendment

Résumé

When thousands of immigrants and immigrant rights supporters took the streets on May 1, 2006, it felt like the coming of age of a social movement akin to the civil rights movement of the 1950s-60s or the labor movement of the 1930s-40s. Just as sanitation workers in Memphis, supported by Martin Luther King, Jr., carried signs proclaiming "I Am a Man" to support their fight for labor, civil, and human rights, immigrant rights groups have also invoked a range of moral justifications. Immigrant rights groups speak about human rights, workers' rights, citizenship rights, and civil rights. Immigrants, especially immigrant workers and their families, might as well draw on the language of the Thirteenth Amendment.
