Action group rallies in Barrington, asks Congress for immigration reform
BARRINGTON – Now that the government shutdown has passed and state representatives are back in office, Northwest Suburb Organizing for Action members are speaking out in hopes to get something else passed – immigration reform.
A public rally was organized by the NWSOFA beginning shortly after noon Tuesday, Oct. 22. Members gathered at Memorial Park on South Hough Street (across from Hough Street School) and walked one block north to rally, petition and display signs outside the Barrington office of U.S. Rep. Peter Roskam, R-Ill, at the Village Hall, 200 South Hough Street.
Rep. Roskam was not in his office Wednesday, nor was he during a September NWSOFA rally focused on pushing the Affordable Care Act and preventing a governmental shutdown. Constituent advocates greeted the rally group both times and recorded commentary to relay to Congress.
