Immigrants to Protest Outside Obama White House

World Journal, Posted: Nov 13, 2008

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Immigration reform is not on the short list of issues that President-elect Barack Obama has given top priority to address after his inauguration in January, the World Journal reports. As a result, immigrant rights groups, many of them from the Latino community, say they will take to the streets. Immigrants and their supporters are planning to protest in front the White House on Jan. 21, 2009, the day after Obamas inauguration, to call on the new president to work toward his campaign promise of immigration reform. Ali Noorani, executive director of the National Immigration Forum, said immigrants voted for Obama in the election, but if the new president takes their votes for granted, he risks losing their support.
