Congressional Republicans, we told you that immigration reform is not an issue that is going away.

To protest the House GOP’s continuing refusal to pass immigration reform, immigration reform advocates with the Gameliel network today staged acts of civil disobedience in three midwest cities–St. Louis, Missouri; South Bend, Indiana; and St. Paul, Minnesota.  According to a press release, 500 faith leaders, DREAMers, immigrants, and allies were involved.

More escalation events are planned later this week in Chicago, California, and cities around the nation.
