This Monday, March 15, Illinois Congressman Luis Gutierrez will hold a large event in the Bronx to continue to build momentum for the March 21st rally in Washington DC and the passage of immigration reform this year.
The Congressman will be joined by a number of New York City elected officials, including Melissa, along with hundreds of members of the city’s immigrant communities. The event will be held at the Latino Pastoral Action Center at 14 West 170th Street in the Bronx.
