After our last meeting, our nocturnal field trip to the Bins of Light was an enjoyable Yakima evening. Upon arriving, we ran into Yakima Economic Development and I Heart Yakima, who were also checking out the art.

The explanation of the installation, which City Council members recently requested of its staff, is at this link:

This Monday, May 1, 2017 we will unite as a community and MARCH FOR IMMIGRANTS at 12:00pm.

After years of suffering, our families still continue to seek common sense solutions from our government leadership. This year we will march in downtown Yakima to demonstrate our commitment to holding our leaders accountable. We invite the Yakima Valley to join this family-friendly community march beginning at Miller Park in Yakima.

Here are 5 community needs and reasons to participate in the
MARCH FOR IMMIGRANTS:

  1. Congress needs to create a comprehensive immigration reform that is practical for our economy, keeps families together, and creates a roadmap towards citizenship.
  2. The Federal program Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is also important for thousands of talented undocumented youth, and needs to be offered as a step towards citizenship.
  3. In addition, there should be no Federal retaliation against cities who declare themselves welcoming to immigrants through ordinances or resolutions like Welcoming City or Sanctuary City designations.
  4. Also, a southern border wall that will cost tax payers billions of dollars is wasteful and should be voted down by Congress. In recent years, the U.S. has seen a trend that shows the majority of immigrants in the country unlawfully have over stayed visa permits, as opposed to physically crossing the U.S.-Mexico border.
  5. Lastly, the Constitution guarantees due process for every person in this country, regardless of citizenship. Fundamental fairness is crucial in our country's civil court system and practices.

The Yakima Valley May 1st MARCH FOR IMMIGRANTS is a peaceful and permitted event. We work to educate the public and public officials. We hope you will join us.
