Over 100 Atttend Immigration Reform Rally in BendSalem-News.com
Immigration advocates say they want to see a sufficient number of visas allocated to close unlawful migration channels and thereby strengthen border security.
(BEND, Ore.) - Today over a hundred supporters of Immigration Reform joined CAUSA, Central Oregon Jobs with Justice and Recursos Para Derechos Humanos at a rally in Bend to call on Congressman Walden to support Comprehensive Immigration Reform legislation this year.
The rally took place during the Central Oregon town hall style TV show "Talk of the Town". During the show, U.S Congressman Greg Walden for Oregon's 2nd District shared updates on current congressional matters.
Those in attendance say they were calling for a humane and comprehensive immigration reform that provides a fair and coherent path to legalization, while protecting U.S. and immigrant workers.
They say they want to see a sufficient number of visas allocated to close unlawful migration channels and thereby strengthen border security.
The group says that will allow the utilization of smart, cost-effective enforcement measures that actually enhance security while protecting human rights and due process.
This they say, keeps families together, promotes immigrant integration, and protects fundamental rights for all.
