September 7 Immigration Demonstrations

National immigration advocates are planning a series of organized national rallies for September 7, according to this morning’s Washington Post. The goal is to get immigration reform back on the congressional agenda. The risk, of course, is that by drawing attention to the immigrant presence in the U.S., there will be a backlash by conservatives and others who want to limit immigration.

The L.A. Times print edition published this article that reports plans for Labor Day rallies in L.A. and Wilmington which are intended to focus national attention on worker rights and immigrant rights.
