Leesburg, VA – March 5 is President Trump’s mandated deadline to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA), a measure that would shield from deportation people who were brought into the United States as children. On this day, people across the nation are holding actions demanding Congress to pass a clean and fair Dream Act.
In Virginia, we will bring home a protest to Congresswoman Barbara Comstock (R-VA 10th District) who represents one of the largest concentrations of immigrants in the Commonwealth, yet refuses to support a clean Dream Act, legislation to support TPS holders, or comprehensive immigration reform.
As Comstock attends an event near the location of the rally, Virginians will gather to express that Comstock’s silence represents lack of leadership for hope and keeping families together. Her decision to neglect her own constituents is immoral and tragic.
