WASHINGTON D.C. (November 8, 2016) _ CASA in Action, along with other grassroots organizations, will make their final push to get out the vote today in Virginia and Pennsylvania in order elect the first woman President of the United States.
“Today is the culmination of months of work that we hope will result in the election of the first woman President,” said Executive Director Gustavo Torres. “For us, this will mean the adoption of an immigration reform package that will stop to the senseless and inhumane deportations tearing families apart, and strong legislation that reforms our immigration system to keep families together.”
CASA in Action has endorsed Hillary Clinton as well as LuAnn Bennet for Congress in Virginia and Katie McGinty to be the next Senator from Pennsylvania. Clinton has promised to introduce immigration reform in Congress within the first 100 days of the new administration.
CASA in Action believes that Hillary Clinton will use every administrative and executive tool in her power to protect the 11 million undocumented immigrants currently under attack.
Early returns show that Latino voters throughout the nation are turning out in record numbers with close to 70 percent support for Clinton. We expect similar numbers reflected in the in Virginia and Pennsylvania.
Canvassing will continue canvassing in Sterling and Manassas, Va. today as well as York, Harrisburg and Lancaster with more than 150 volunteers making sure every Democrat votes.
CASA in Action staff, volunteers as well as members of other groups such as America Bridge, Seiu 32BJ, UFCW400 will hit the streets Virginia from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
