Richmond, Va.—On Thursday, June 13 at 9:30 a.m. at Congregation Or Ami in Richmond, Virginia Organizing and other groups will release a new poll conducted by Harper Polling showing overwhelming support for the bipartisan, comprehensive immigration reform bill that includes a path to citizenship currently being debated in the U.S. Senate.
Community leaders and supporters of immigration reform from a wide range of ideologies will discuss how the new poll indicates voters in Virginia are ready for a common-sense solution to the country’s broken immigration system that includes a path to citizenship for 11 million undocumented immigrants.
Virginia Organizing Chairperson Sandra A. Cook said, “We sent Congress to Washington to get this job done. It is clear that a large majority of Virginia’s electorate supports this bill. We implore Congress to pass this bill and fix our broken immigration system.”
The poll was sponsored by the Alliance for Citizenship, Partnership for a New American Economy, and Republicans for Immigration Reform, three organizations that represent the broad support for immigration reform from across the political spectrum.
Full results of the poll will be released immediately after the media conference.
