Local Civil, Immigrants and Labor Rights Groups Respond to President’s Immigration Speech

Mobilization Campaign for Commonsense Immigration Reform Begins

Saint Paul, MN – On Wednesday, January 30 at 12:30 p.m., local civil, immigrants and labor rights leaders will come together at the State Capitol to stand in support of President Obama’s legislative proposal for immigration reform.

Congressman Keith Ellison will join SEIU Local 26 President Javier Morillo and other local leaders in unveiling their united campaign to call on Congress to pass commonsense immigration reform in 2013. The groups will announce plans to contact lawmakers and hold rallies in April across the nation, leading up to a mass demonstration on April 10 at the U.S. Capitol, where tens of thousands of marchers will gather.

National polls demonstrate an across-the-aisle support for a real and lasting solution to repair the country’s immigration system. As immigration reform rises to the top of the Obama Administration’s legislative agenda, 2013 is undoubtedly the year for Congress to pass a commonsense immigration reform with a clear roadmap to citizenship.
