Advocates Push for Immigration Reform

Tuesday, February 16, 2010

Immigration reform has been on the back burner in Congress but a group of New Yorkers wants to end that with a road trip.

The New York Immigration Coalition is organizing a statewide tour to visit towns across the state and pressure politicians to join in their cause. 

"As one of the leading gateways in the country for immigration we're really trying to make sure New York is galvanized and ready to mobilize our base to make sure comprehensive immigration reform passes in 2010," says Kevin Kwok, one of the dozen road trippers.

Kwok faults the Obama administration for not pushing for immigration reform.
