Today Monday Feb 5 Dreamers Demonstration at Congressman Lance’s office

There will be a demonstration in favor of Congressional action on behalf of Dreamers at Congressman Leonard Lance’s office at 425 North Avenue East, in Westfield, at 3:30pm today.

Organizers anticipate that there will be some arrests of clergy and activists who plan to engage in acts of civil disobedience at today’s demonstration.

Anyone who wants to participate may contact Rev. Carmine Pernini of Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church in Rahway for further details at 732-284-6054.

Congress has until Thursday to enact a budget and Republicans have betrayed a promise to allow a vote to extend protection for immigrants who were brought to America as children and do not know life anywhere else.
A program to defer deportations for nearly 800,000 such people was created by former President Barack Obama but President Donald Trump created a crisis by ending it.
The class has been dubbed ‘Dreamers’ because they hope to someday share in the American dream by being given a path to citizenship.
