In an unprecedented nationwide campaign, Congressman Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) is visiting local communities and churches to promote the Family Unity Campaign, working to keep families together in the face of destructive immigration enforcement policies. Check out Gutierrez’s website for a full listing of events.
“As a nation -as citizens- we cannot wait any longer for fair and just immigration reform,” said Rep. Gutierrez. “Across America, parents and children, husbands and wives are being torn apart by a system that values quotas over family values and which undermines our economic security in a time of crisis. It is for this reason that U.S. citizens in each of these cities are joining this effort and standing up for real, lasting change.”
The event for the El Paso Metropolitan Area will take place on Friday, March 13th. Yesterday, a Press Conference was held to formally announce the event.
Be sure to stay tuned for announcements of other local events being hosted by Congressman Gutierrez.
