Our very own Kelly Tadeo Orbik, the Associate Director of the CCSJ, attended a press conference on April 4th for common-sense immigration laws with a clear and inclusive roadmap to citizenship.
Kelly, representing the CCSJ, stood with over 30 Nebraska organizations on the west steps of the Nebraska State Capitol in support of immigration reform.
The variety of organizations– faith, business, labor, immigrant, civic, civil rights, children and families–gathered at the capitol to urge their Nebraska legislators to work towards a reformed immigration bill as they prepared to return to Washington, D.C. following the recess. A bill is expected to be introduced some time after April 8th, when the recess ends.
Along with the CCSJ, participating organizations included ACLU Nebraska, Omaha Together One Community, Heartland Workers Center, and many more.
