Black Group Organizes Immigration March on Capitol Hill

Travelers, for more information please detour to the DC March for Jobs website: www.DCmarchforjobs.com 

WASHINGTON, July 9, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- On Monday, July 15th the Black American Leadership Alliance (BALA) will host a march and rally with speakers including U.S. Senator Ted Cruz, Former Congressman Colonel Allen West, Congressman Steve King and others.  March and rally participants at the DC March for Jobs will gather at Freedom Plaza at 9:30 a.m., and march to Upper Senate Park to oppose all forms of amnesty and protect American jobs for American workers.  BALA leaders and rally participants will petition Congress, the Gang of Eight and the Congressional Black Caucus to demand that they protect black labor by opposing amnesty and halting efforts to double legal immigration levels as required under the recently passed Senate immigration bill.

According to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, illegal immigration has kept wages and employment down over recent decades, particularly among black men.  "Now is not the time for Congress to increase competition for scarce jobs by adding millions more workers through legalization," said Frank Morris, Alliance President, and former Executive Director of the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation. "Increasing immigration levels through amnesty and new visa programs - particularly at the low skilled level will flood the labor market with millions more people, leading to higher unemployment, more poverty, and a lower standard of living for many in the black community."
