A group of about 80 immigrants and pro-immigration activists on Tuesday asked the Republican speaker of the House, John Boehner to show “courage” in approving immigration reform when they delivered to his congressional office some cardboard medallions on which that word was written.
With this symbolic gesture, organized by the Fair Immigration Reform Movement, or FIRM, the group asked Boehner to change the current immigration system, given that it – they said – separates hundreds of families each day.
The activists, who came to the nation’s capital from at least 20 states, marched through the halls of Congress wearing around their necks the “courage” medallions and deposited them at Boehner’s office, chiding him for being a “coward” for not allowing a House vote on the new immigration bill.
