Clergy plan march for immigration reform

February 20. 2018 11:28PM

MANCHESTER — Manchester clergy who support immigration reform have scheduled a march today to the offices of New Hampshire’s two U.S. senators to support for immigration reform.

The 5 p.m. march will start at Grace Episcopal Church at Lowell and Pine streets and proceed to the Manchester offices of U.S. Sens. Maggie Hassan and Jeanne Shaheen. Community members will share stories of losing loved ones to deportation and detention.

“We are dismayed by the failure of Congress to pass a solution for the Dreamers or to act to resolve the immigration crisis in our country,” said the Rev. Sarah Rockwell, priest of St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church and president of the Granite State Organizing Project.
