Sponsored by New York Immigration Coalition, the #ALLin4RELIEF campaign has New Yorkers and friends taking selfie instavideos, expressing why they support administrative relief from deportations. The campaign builds momentum for a Town Hall today on immigration reform.

“New Yorkers for Real Immigration Reform, a campaign coordinated by the New York Immigration Coalition, is gearing up for a big town hall on Tuesday, August 26th at Baruch College where immigrant New Yorkers, their families, friends and allies, joined by advocates and elected officials, will come together to share how deportations have impacted their communities and why the time is right for President Obama to provide administrative relief.”
