Washington, D.C. – This week, the nation’s mayors are gearing up for a Cities’ Day of Immigration Action to be held on Tuesday, March 21. Events that day will demonstrate support for immigrants in communities across the country and reiterate the mayors’ support for comprehensive immigration reform.
U.S. Conference of Mayors leaders Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, Providence Mayor Jorge Elorza, Anaheim Mayor Tom Tait and Seattle Mayor Ed Murray will host a bipartisan press conference call with reporters at 12 noon EDT to kick off the Day of Action. On this day, mayors will come together with residents and stakeholders for a variety of activities, including community meetings and press events, to demonstrate their cities’ support for immigrants and to underscore their value to both the national and local economies.
On the call, mayors will stress the vital contributions that immigrants make to their cities and the nation. They will urge the Administration and Congress to focus on common sense reforms that will fix the nation’s broken immigration system in an efficient, effective and compassionate way.
Mayors will amplify their message by using #MayorsStand4All across their social media platforms on March 21 and beyond.
