Hearing on Immigration Reform - Imperial Beach
Wednesday, 07/05/2006

They're calling these hearings "public," yet they're only allowing testimony from hand-picked groups such as the right-wing, vigilante Friends of the Border Patrol. Join us on Wednesday, July 5 at 9:00 a.m. to protest the sham hearings at the Imperial Beach Border Patrol Station in San Diego. Read More
