No Human is Illegal Cross Stitch Pattern


The “No Human is Illegal” pattern features an alphabet written in two skin tones, a soft brown and pale beige. There are two smiling faces, one of a light-skinned man and one of a dark-skinned woman, surrounded by a geometric border in the same colors as the letters.

Using the term “illegal” to describe a human being is not only factually wrong (it’s a literal impossibility), but it is derogatory. It’s a dehumanizing term meant to convey an inherent criminality that doesn’t exist. Advocates say we should use the term “undocumented immigrant” instead. Because they ARE US.

This pattern was previously only available as a bonus pattern part of the #WeBelieveSAL.
