In the tradition of the Freedom Riders of the 1960's, immigrant families, faith leaders and allies from across the state are hitting the road on a caravan to Hobbs, Congressman Steve Pearce's hometown, for a large-scale demonstration on Oct. 6. The caravan, organized by Somos Un Pueblo Unido, caps unprecedented protest marches, prayer rallies, and town hall meetings that occurred in Pearce's district over the summer contesting Congressman's refusal to support a path to citizenship for immigrant families. The statewide caravan, "On the Road to Citizenship," is one of hundreds of actions taking place across the nation as part of the National Day of Action for Immigration Reform on Oct. 5-6 to pressure House Republicans to pass comprehensive immigration legislation this year.
Luz Elena Granados, of Farmington, will travel eight hours to Hobbs with the caravan. "The trip is worth every hour and worth the risk because the longer we wait for immigration reform and a path to citizenship, the more people will get deported and families will be separated. I'm riding because Pearce needs to know what it's like to live with this fear. He represents our families too.
