Broad Coalition asks Kline to Listen to the Majority of his Constituents–Including 76% of Second District Republicans–and Pass Reform
On Wednesday, November 13th at 10:30 am, leaders from Minnesota’s education, business, faith, labor, and immigrant communities will fast outside the office of Rep. John Kline to urge him to pass immigration reform. The fast echoes direct actions being carried out in Washington DC and asks Rep. Kline to join his House Republican colleagues that have already signed onto house legislation. Rep. Kline has been the target of multiple grassroots actions this month as he continues to disregard his constituents and take no action on bipartisan reform. This October, Public Policy Polling found that a large majority of Kline’s district, including 76% of republican voters, support immigration reform with a pathway to citizenship.
In June, the Senate passed a historic, bipartisan immigration reform bill with a pathway to citizenship for the 11 million undocumented immigrants contributing to the US; but now, the bill has stalled in the House of Representatives despite overwhelming support from Americans to pass immigration reform this year.
What: Leaders from Minnesota’s education, business, faith, labor, and immigrant communities will fast outside the office of Rep. John Kline for immigration reform.
