No dia 9 de abril, terça-feira, o prefeito de Pompano Beach, Lamar Fisher, confirmou que estará na pauta a resolução feita pelos brasileiros em favor da reforma imigratória. Seria muito bom para comunidade ter o apoio de governantes locais nessa luta. Mas tem sido muito dificil.
Por isso, é preciso estar lá, no dia 9 de abril, às 7pm em ponto, no Pompano Beach City Hall (100 W. Atlantic Blvd, Pompano Beach).

Além disso, é importante mostrar para alguns vereadores que os brasileiros estão determinados e querem o apoio deles. Precisamos de três dos cinco vereadores, e há dois ainda indecisos. Se possível, seria importante dedicar um minuto para simplesmente copiar o texto abaixo e mandá-lo para: Comissioner Brummer no email: george.brummer@copbfl.com e para o Comissioner Hardin no email: rex.hardin@copbfl.com.

Dear Comissioner,
As you may know, our immigrant community has grown exponentially in the past decade and it is something to be proud of as our city diversifies economically and culturally.

Today, according to 2010 Census, a full 25% of Pompano residents are foreign-born and an even greater portion of the labor force. 35% of households in Pompano report speaking another language at home. Latinos are about 17% of residents and account for 14% of businesses in Pompano. (source: http://quickfacts.census.gov/qfd/states/12/1258050.html)

Because of these numbers and many more, we think it’s of great importance for the city of Pompano Beach to show its support for federal comprehensive immigration reform that includes a fair pathway to citizenship. Already, the city of Sunrise has passed a resolution, Margate will be voting today one and Deerfield has tentatively put it on their agenda in two weeks. We hope Pompano Beach can stand with its residents in support of a new immigration system that will bring economic development and more integration to our municipalities.
Sincerely,

(assinatura do remetente)”
