Immigration and deportation are issues facing many families.

Like yesterday, we met many plenty of new people today at Bessemer Park, during an immigration reform rally. Manuel Valenzuela gave a very profound speech that moved everyone deeply. As a vet who served and then had to go through excruciating process to stay in America, it really hit home. Many others gave their views on what they thought of the deportations that are happening around the country and how it’s tearing families apart. And still many politicians are not dealing with the issue at hand, but rather choose to ignore it.
After the rally we headed to the progressive office where we shared lunch and discussed as a group, immigration reform.

After the meeting, we were introduced to many talented and skilled people who offered their help, so we can restore the Li’l stone house.   It won’t be long before we’re filling the streets with Music & Art.   Thank you to all the people who want to be part of Pueblo House; Larry, Manuel, Noemi, Ana, Michael, Lisbet & Daniel & Becky (who is anxious to hear more about the media house planned for our Low Frequency Radio Station).  We heard it’s going to be a gorgeous week with temperatures near the 70’s & 80’s, perfect for plastering. Big thanks to Manuel who might have found us an electrician to pull the permit…we’ll keep our fingers crossed.
