CAIR-CA Rep Joins Immigration March Commemoration

CAIR-SAN DIEGO REP ATTENDS PRESS CONFERENCE COMMEMORATING IMMIGRATION MARCH

(SAN DIEGO, CA, 4/11/07) – On Tuesday April 10, a representative of the San Diego chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-San Diego) joined other people of faith, community residents and union workers to urge the President and Congress to pass Real Humane Comprehensive Immigration reform.

The event was part of a National Day of Action, during which 31 other cities across the country joined the call for a stop to the political chess playing in Washington, D.C. and for real solutions to a failed immigration system.

Last year more than 100,000 San Diegans marched from Balboa Park to downtown San Diego in coordination with millions of others in cities across the country against the criminalization of immigrants.

Edgar Hopida, Public Relations Director for the San Diego chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-San Diego), was among the faith-based organization leaders invited to participate. Other organizations who endorsed this press conference included ACORN San Diego, Justice Overcoming Boundaries in San Diego County (JOB), and the Latino Policy Institute.
