Hundreds of working families, community members, faith leaders and civil rights organizations will join a Town Hall Monday to express the need for a bill that keeps families together. “The broken immigration system has gone unfixed for too long and it is time for Orange County leaders to take a stand for the 11 million aspiring Americans,” said Julio Perez, Staff Director of the Orange County Labor Federation.
Orange County communities have been affected by the broken system and are calling for a new immigration policy that unites families and communities for shared prosperity.
The agenda for the Town Hall will include a presentation on the current bill, community testimonies on family unity and worker contributions as well as a space for discussion with Members of Congress.
WHAT: As Republicans in the House remain content with maintaining the status quo, Orange County communities call on their representatives to support an immigration policy with a road map to citizenship.
