Dozens of organizations are coming together today for an Immigration Reform Day of Action. At 11:30AM, the march will commence at the corner of Clay and Smith Streets in Downtown Houston and will visit the Federal Building before continuing.
All of this is to bring this issue to the attention of Texas’ Senators Cruz and Cornyn–both whom have shown little support for fair immigration reform. In fact, Cornyn and another local member of Congress recently submitted a “secure border” bill with unreachable markers which would define a “secure border.” The bill threatens to stop any current momentum that the Gang of 8 has achieved; if anything, talks seem to be getting a bit sluggish as it is.
So, obviously, a marcha is in order. Join the march this morning!
