Voices from Foley Square #A10NYC National Day of Action on Immigration Reform

We take you to last Thursday, April 10th's National Day of Action for comprehensive immigration reform. With demonstrations taking place in Los Angeles and New York, proponents of immigration reform called for Congress to take immediate action on immigration reform and to stop deporting over a thousand people a day. Over 200 people gathered in downtown Manhattan to call attention to family separation caused by deportation, to call for the passage of the New York State DREAM Act and to urge Congress to act on comprehensive immigration reform. Community leaders and youth from the Arab American Association of New York (AAANY), Min Kwon Action Center and the New York Immigration Coalition (NYIC) also discussed language access and the municipal identification card.
