PHOTOS: Annual Immigrant Action Day Focuses on Immigration, Health Care and Census

Yesterday, CAUSA held it's 12th annual Immigrant Action Day in Salem. The event took place at Chemeketa Community College and drew over 350 people including members of the faith community, immigration reform advocates and leaders from the organized labor movement.

The topics covered included Comprehensive Immigration Reform, Health Care Reform and the 2010 Census. Around Immigration Reform, speakers discussed two crucial pieces of legislation, Comprehensive Immigration Reform for America's Security and Prosperity (CIR-ASAP) Act of 2009 and The Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act of 2009, and advocacy efforts to pass them in Congress.

This year was the first time Immigrant Action Day was broadcast live over the internet. Over 20 people tuned in to watch and follow the updates on CAUSA's twitter and facebook pages.

Here are some photos of the event:
