Add comment on:Speakers from Santa Cruz Rally Against HR 4437
About 500 people rallied at the Santa Cruz County Building, before a march to Beach Flats Park, to express outrage against HR 4437; one of many anti-immigrant bills making its way through Congress. HR 4437 would make it a felony offense to be in the U.S. without proper documentation. This would push undocumented immigrants further underground, and increase the potential for exploitation by employers. This bill would also criminalize nurses, teachers, clergy, social workers, and anyone else who aids, assists, or otherwise has regular contact with undocumented immigrants. Below are the voices of some who spoke at the rally. (Thanks to Josh and Bradley for the text)
