Broad Statewide Community Coalition Announces Support for Comprehensive Immigration Reform

Yesterday I attended a press conference by the Tennessee Immigrant Rights Coalition organized by David Lubell. The conference brought together representatives from Tennessee's academic, religious, labor, legal, business, and immigrant communities--as well as others who support immigrants, the important contributions made by Tennessee's immigrant families, and the need for comprehensive reform of the nation's immigration system.

The conference highlighted the need for the passage of comprehensive immigration reform legislation. The Secure America and Orderly Immigration Act, proposed by Arizona Senator John McCain, is the only bi-partisan reform proposal that honors values of family, hard work and fairness by putting into place a safe, legal, and orderly system, enabling hardworking immigrant families to fully contribute to the economy and our communities.

Immigration reform will allow the evacuees of Hurricane Katrina to feel better by helping to solve the immigration problem and to rebuild their lives.

The event took place at the Catholic Center of Nashville, Tennessee. For more information about the press conference contact TIRRC's policy coordinator, Stephen Fotopulos at stephen@tnimmigrant.org or 615-845-6672.
