Immigrant rights organizations and allies nationwide will continue escalating pressure on members of Congress to pass a comprehensive immigration reform bill by holding more than 100 events nationwide on Oct. 5 as part of the "Day of Dignity and Respect" for all immigrant families.
In Portland, people will gather for the October 5th National Day of Action by holding a rally for immigration reform in Director Park at 3pm.
"The Day of Dignity and Respect will show House Republicans why they must act quickly on passing an immigration reform bill that contains a path to citizenship and keeps families together," said Andrea Miller, Executive Director of Causa Oregon. "We will continue to put pressure on members of Congress until immigration reform is won."
