HCIR Sends Advocates to D.C. to Push for Immigration Reform. KITV Highlights Our Work.

HCIR sent advocates to Washington D.C. to join immigrants and allies from across the country to push for pathways to citizenship for immigrants.

Brissa Flores Romero, Catherine Chen, Danicole Ramos, and Stephanie Haro-Sevilla met with Hawai‘i’s federal delegation on September 22-23 to advocate for the inclusion of immigration reform as part of the budget reconciliation package, part of the national We Are Home campaign. The group met virtually with Senators Mazie Hirono and Brian Schatz and Representative Ed Case.

Catherine and Danicole were on the ground in D.C., and they also met with Representative Kaiali'i Kahele and joined other advocates from around the country in a march in Washington, D.C.

KITV's Annalisa Burgos talked to Stephanie, Danicole, and Catherine about their efforts and about the need for legislative action for our community of undocumented immigrants in Hawai'i. Watch the KITV spot and read their related article here.
