Groups meet to call for immigration reform in South Bend

Posted:

Immigration reform advocacy organizations met Monday to call for immediate immigration reform.  They want to have a halt to deportations, release those who are currently being detained, with the exception of violent criminals, and renew and expand Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals to include a wider age range of childhood arrivals and their family members.

The Chair for the National Civil Rights for Immigrants with Gamaliel, Jesusa Rivera, says we need to pass immigration reform now.  "Let's not wait.  Let's not make excuses," Rivera said.  "The time is now to do this."

The group kicked off their Fast 4 Families event and sun up by participating in a 24 hour fast.  They will be gathering to pray Monday night at 5:30pm at St. Aldalbert's Church and to talk about strategies on how to move their member of congress.
