Rally for Immigrant Justice on April 10th!

by Community Change | April 3, 2013 12:00 am

Tens of thousands of immigrants, supporters and faith and community leaders will gather on the U.S. Capitol’s West Lawn on Wednesday, April 10th to demand comprehensive immigration reform that includes a pathway to citizenship.

As the website states, the purpose of the event is to “educate, march, rally, pray and knock on the doors of Congress until President Obama signs common sense immigration reform that includes a realistic path to citizenship.”

According to a recent poll, 80% of Americans today support immigration reform that includes a pathway to citizenship.  They understand that our current immigration laws are no longer working, and tearing apart families through deportation is not the way to deal with the 11 million undocumented immigrants living in this country.

Join us in telling Congress that the time is now to fix our broken immigration system!  Click here to register for the April 10th rally!
