Dozens Arrested During 40 Days of Action for a Vote on Immigration Reform

On the heels of House Republicans missing the Aug. 1 deadline to produce an immigration reform bill, immigration activists, labor union organizers, and faith leaders began “40 Days of Action,” a movement of civil disobedience that embody the frustrations of communities across the nation.

During the first action of the summer, protestors held hands in front of the U.S. Cannon House Office Building in Washington, D.C., declaring, "Undocumented, unafraid.” Other actions have included posting signs in the House bathrooms that read, “Employees must pass immigration reform upon returning to work” and meeting with Republican Congressmembers to engage in a dialogue about the necessity of immigration reform.
