Today, Leaders from CAUSA , PCUN, Rural Organizing Project, Mujeres Luchadores Progresistas and the Oregon Association of Nurseries held a press briefing at the Oregon State Capitol to discuss the National Campaign to pass fair and just Comprehensive Immigration Reform this year.
As momentum continues to build nationwide in support of passage of fair and just immigration reform, a delegation from Oregon will go to Washington D.C this week to attend the largest convening of immigration reform advocates and allies of the year. The Summit will mark the beginning of the campaign to secure a common sense approach that gives the hard working men and women already here an earned path to citizenship, keeps families together and provides legal avenues for future workers.
During Today's press briefing, members of Oregon's delegation provided updates on the national campaign and what CAUSA and our allies are doing within the state to further the nationwide effort to pass Comprehensive Immigration Reform.
