More than 25 years later we are finally going to get rid of Rep. Ed Royce, the Republican chairman of the House Foreign Relations Committee known not only for his hawkish and anti-immigrant and refugee policies, but also for his unconditional and staunch support for the State of Israel.
For that reason, we are going to party on Tuesday! Check out this Facebook event page hosted by Activate Labs: https://www.facebook.com/events/1413455008763516/
Rep. Ed Royce is out… he has announced his blessed retirement and will not be seeking re-election in 2018.
Its clear from his record that the more time he spends with his family – will mean more time immigrant, refugee and worker families in our community will be spending together. This year the constituents of the 39th district will have an opportunity to elect a new representative. Regardless of the next Congressmember’s party affiliation, it is time to end deportation, welcome refugees, and support a just immigration reform.
Join activists, social change organizations, unions and a few candidates running for his seat to CELEBRATE!
We will also have a large “Happy Retirement” card for Rep Ed Royce that all can sign.
