NATIONAL DAY OF ACTION:
A CALL FOR TEMPORARY PROTECTION OF UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANTS
Local immigrant activists call on Congress to Act Now to Protect the Rights of Immigrants and Their Families
(Houston) On Wednesday, Sept 12, from 6 pm to 9 pm, in a vigil in front of the Mickey Leland Federal Building (1919 Smith), CRECEN joins Elvira Arellano, Saulito and other people of faith nationwide in a call for a Temporary Protected Status of the 12 million undocumented immigrants and their families.
Increased raids, detentions, deportations and the firings by many employers of employees with invalid Social Security numbers have created a crisis in the immigrant community. Now is the time for Congress and the President to take a definite stand in alleviating the hardship of broken immigration policies on millions of families.
Now is the time to demonstrate commitment to people who contribute daily to the well-being of the nation--the millions of immigrant workers and thier families. Events will be held throughout the nation on this day.
