The North STAR Act

Safety, Trust, and Respect for All Minnesotans

Presented in collaboration with the Immigrant Welcoming Work Group

The North STAR Act is a Minnesota legislature bill which seeks to diminish the fear and uncertainty under which so many immigrants live. It would allow immigrants to utilize public services locally and within the state without fear of being reported to federal authorities or deported for minor infractions.

MN State Senator Omar Fateh represents District 62 in south/central Minneapolis and is the chief senate author of the North STAR Act. Adriana Cerrillo is on the Board of Education for Minneapolis Public Schools representing District 4 and the lead organizer for the North STAR Alliance.
