Causa Responds to Candidates Using Misleading Attack Ads Against Driver Card

Salem, Ore. – Andrea Miller, Executive Director of Causa, issued the following statement today in response to mailers attacking state legislative candidates on Measure 88:

“These attack ads being sent into legislative districts are completely shameful, and they are not Oregon. These ads are attempting to mislead voters with fear tactics on an important public safety measure, which only hurts our political process. We, like all Oregonians, are concerned with public safety and the livelihood of Oregon Families, and encourage a yes vote on the common sense driver card measure."

Families, Advocates to Rally for Administrative Relief and Immigration Reform at U.S. Senate Offices in Portland

Portland, Ore. -- In response to President Obama's recent announcement that he will delay administrative action on immigration reform, immigrant families and advocates will hold a rally on Friday, September 26th at 12 p.m., at the offices of U.S. Senators Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley.  We will ask Oregon's U.S. Senators to join us in calling on President Obama to keep his promise by providing administrative relief and stopping deportations for thousands of immigrant families immediately.

Friday, September 26, 2014 | 12:00pm Noon Justice 
Delayed is Justice Denied
Rally for Administrative Relief & Ending Deportations for Immigrant Families

Office of U.S. Senator Ron Wyden

911 NE 11th Ave. 
Portland, OR 97232

Participants to include immigrant families and supporters, Causa Oregon, Pineros y Campesinos Unidos del Noroeste (Northwest Treeplanters and Farmworkers United) (PCUN), and Allies.

We will meet at Senator Ron Wyden's office at 12 Noon and then go to Merkley's office.  At each office, we will meet with staff and deliver a letter asking the Senators to stand with us in calling on President Obama to take executive action.

Both Senator Ron Wyden and Senator Jeff Merkley have been vocal supporters of immigration reform and keeping families together and they have both voted in support of legislation to reform our nation's broken immigration system.
