El Colectivo NC strongly rejects anti-immigrant and xenophobic bills that have been introduced (most of them had already been vetoed) in the General Assembly, as well as similar bills that will be introduced in the following weeks.

These bills are based on racism, hate, xenophobia, and misinformation and only put immigrants, minorities, and LGBTQ youth at risk.
