National Bus Tour for Immigration Reform to Arrive in Bend on March 3rd

Fast For Families Across America to bring message of urgency for passage of Immigration Reform with a path to citizenship.


(BEND) - In alliance with Fast For Families Across America, community members and organizations from Central Oregon will gather on March 3rd to welcome the national bus tour visiting 100 congressional districts to engage constituents in a dialogue about the moral crisis caused by our broken immigration system and encourage them to fast, act and pray. Members of the Central Oregon community want their Congressman, Greg Walden, to understand the urgency to pass common sense immigration reform and keep families from being torn apart.

There will be an opportunity for 2nd District residents to connect with the Fast For Families Across America Bus Tour, meet the riders and learn what they can do to help pass immigration reform with a path to citizenship.
