Yesterday, diverse allies in 40 different cities across the country came together to launch the Reform Immigration FOR America Campaign. Reading through the press coverage of the launches, its truly inspiring to see just how broad support is for the campaign.
In Los Angeles, hundreds of people marched to launch the RI4A Campaign:
Carrying signs that read “Economic Recovery Includes Immigration Reform,” the demonstrators marched from the Our Lady Queen of Angels church to City Hall in downtown Los Angeles, where they held a rally calling for an immigration reform that they said would benefit all citizens.
Angelica Salas, executive director for the Coalition for Humane Immigration Rights of Los Angeles, said that the campaign “promotes immigration reform that actually promotes economic opportunity for all.”
Los Angeles City Council President Eric Garcetti joined the demonstrators in their call to action.
