I am proud to say that fellow San Diegans are fighting to keep the Immigration debate alive. A group of about 100 people rallied in front of the San Diego downtown offices of California’s U.S. senators Thursday night, calling for renewed attention to immigration reform.
The group gathered at St. Joseph Cathedral on Third Avenue near Beech Street and marched about two miles to a pair of office buildings on B Street near Seventh Avenue, where the offices of Democratic Sens. Barbara Boxer and Dianne Feinstein are located.
There they delivered a message calling on the lawmakers to work on legislation to legalize the millions of illegal immigrants in the country. Their speeches focused on the themes of unity, family and hope. They held signs, in both English and Spanish, with messages like “Don’t destroy more families. Help families” and “God does not separate families. The government does.”
