APALA-DC Rallies for Family Unity at the AAPI Day of Action for Immigration Reform

Yesterday, APALA-DC joined immigrant families and allies from over 20 different states in front of the Capitol to rally for fair and just immigration reform. Community leaders spoke to the energized crowd, along with Reps. Judy Chu (CA) Jan Schakowsky (IL).

“Our message is clear,” said APALA’s own Greg Cendana, “America needs united immigrant families for a stronger economy…We will not stand idly by as fathers, mothers and children are detained or deported as immigration reform draws closer. We will not be silenced while family reunification is being used as a bargaining chip in exchange for big business where working Americans are displaced and immigrant workers are exploited by employers seeking to cut costs.”
