Deepak Bhargava from the Campaign for Community Change was just arrested.
He was arrested in an act of civil disobedience against unjust immigration policies that are tearing families apart, leaving children without their parents, wives without their husbands and brothers and sisters without each other. He was arrested in protest of House of Representatives leadership leaving for a five week vacation without introducing an immigration reform bill that provides a pathway to citizenship. They are abdicating their responsibility to these families, our communities and our country.
Call 866-930-3396 now to be connected to your Representative and tell them we need an immigration bill that includes a pathway to citizenship. Stand with the leaders who were arrested today.
The civil disobedience he just participated in is only the start of our upcoming 40 days of actions and prayer. After decades of families being torn apart, now is the time to pass immigration reform. The House must take action to pass a comprehensive immigration bill that contains a pathway to citizenship and keeps families together.
Today he was joined by more than 30 immigrant rights, community, faith and other leaders on Capitol Hill in protest. But they need your help to keep the movement for comprehensive immigration reform going.
Join the movement. Dial 866-930-3396 to let your Representative know that you will hold them accountable for their inaction on immigration reform!
