Mobilization to Washington, D.C. (March 21, 2010)

We are here to say to Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reed and Dick Durbin that you have 30 days to keep your promise to the Latino community – or we will leave you where we found you when we voted you into office.  Friends keep promises.  Are you our friends?

You have not only broken your promise to move immigration reform you have made the situation worse – deporting more people, separating more families, breaking more children’s hearts than did the Republicans in their final year.  You have the power – you must use it or lose it.  We will not live peacefully in a nation that is at war with our community and our families.

Do not mistake our faith for weakness.  Remember Jesus said, “I did not come to bring peace, but a sword.”  What God has put together, no man, no government should tear apart.  We will put on the armor of the Lord and we will go to Washington.  It is showdown time.  We are united as never before.  We will mobilize as never before.  The ground is shaking.  Justice delayed is justice denied. We will be in Washington with all of our families, all of our churches, all of our young men and women.  We pray that God sends you there to meet us with a bill already introduced and moving in both the House and the Senate.

Adelante a Washington !  From now on, Not one step backwards !
