Salem, Ore.--Today, close to 70 advocates of Immigration Reform and the DREAM Act marched and rallied at the office of Congressman Kurt Schrader (D-OR). Their message to the Congressman was for him to join on as a co-sponsor of the Comprehensive Immigration Reform for America's Security and Prosperity Act of 2009 (CIR ASAP) (HR 4321) and to support the DREAM Act of 2009 in Congress.
