Reform Immigration Campaign for Support

Our broken immigration system is hurting our economy, American families, and all American workers. Comprehensive immigration reform is the solution. President Obama supports reform. But only Congress has the power to pass legislation.

On Thursday January 14th, over 80 supporter of immigrants rights gathered in the historic Sonoma Plaza, to kick off the Reform Immigration for America campaign. Young students spoke of their experience being denied options to higher education, faith based leaders referred to the immigrant Jesus and the common struggle being undertaken, The United Farm Workers spoke about the importance of Ag Jobs to the farmworker population, supporting wineries donated bottles as symbols of support, which were to be then donated to Congressman Mike Thompson (Dist. 1) as gratitude for past support of immigrants in northern California. The action was also in coordination with 55 other actions across California between January 12th- 14th, as well as over 100 across the country in 28 different states.

We need to win comprehensive immigration reform in 2010, but we need to make sure we're organized first. Come support!
