Fresno City Council passes DACA/DAPA resolution

From our friends at the Fresno Immigration Coalition:

20151210-daca1Dear Coalition Members,

It is with much excitement that the Fresno Immigration Coalition announces, today we were able to pass the DACA/DAPA resolution unanimously. We had four speakers in favor of the resolution and one individual that came out against our resolution voicing their hate for the community we represent. However, none of the council-members showed support for her, and voted with us instead.

We would like to recognize today’s speakers.

Dr. Jesus Martinez
Grisanti Valencia
Dr. Kapoor
and Willie Lopez

This was an effort that started seven months ago and we have finally seen this resolution pass. Thanks again to all of whom participated in the meetings with the individual council members and were at today’s event.
