RITA launches unprecedented statewide caravan for immigration reform
By John-Michael Torres, June 12, 2013

Texas4cir Logo for fb coverAs the Senate begins debate on immigration reform today, Texans are planning an unprecedented statewide caravan for reform.

Next Monday, Texans from across the state will be hitting the road for the #Texas4CIR Caravan to demand immigration reform with a pathway to citizenship and accountable enforcement policies.

The caravan will stop in 16 Texas cities, including those cities where Sen. John Cornyn and Sen. Cruz have offices. RITA members are also visiting members of Congress, attending community forums and other public actions throughout the caravan.

RITA invites others to join the #Texas4CIR Caravan for the drive to Austin for a statewide action demanding that our senators listen to Texans on this issue.
