Gamaliel affiliates across the country made congressional visits to deliver half birthday cakes to members of congress. Half cakes because the wok is half done. DACA is beneficial for many, but it is not a permanent and stable solution and it leaves millions of people out. We’re going to keep fighting.” Ana Garcia-Ashley, Executive Director of Gamaliel said, “We need an immigration reform now. The family is the basic unit of our society, but our broken immigration system divides families and keeps loved ones apart for years and even decades.” Bus Tour Schedule:  Monday, August 19th  8:30am: Vigil at Rep Eric Paulsen’s Office, Eden Prairie, MN 9:30am Vigil at Rep John Kline’s Office, Burnsville, MN Tuesday, August 20th  9:30am Vigil at Rep.
