Over 50 Organizations Urge the Supreme Court to TAKE DACA & DAPA
(WASHINGTON) —Today, Friday, January 8, at 6:00 PM ET, the Fair Immigration Reform Movement (FIRM), along with children and families, and over 50 immigrant rights, Labor, and Faith organizations will march and hold a “Standing Together for Justice Prayer” in front of the Supreme Court to urge the Court to hear and take up the case regarding President Obama’s executive order to expand DACA and implement DAPA.
The Standing Together for Justice Prayer Vigil will kick off a national week of action, aimed at bringing together immigrant families, organizations, allies and supporters across the country to show the national significance of this case and urge the Supreme Court to take up the case and give relief to millions of immigrant families.
