New Jersey Catholic Conference Supports CONLAMIC in Riverside

Riverside, NJ -- The Catholic Conference of Bishops in New Jersey steps forward to support CONLAMIC efforts to reverse the anti-immigrant ordinances in Riverside Township. Reverend Miguel Rivera, President of CONLAMIC will join Latino leaders and officials from the New Jersey Deptartment of Justice tomorrow to discuss the moblization of thousands of Latino residents in Riverside and the surrounding areas who will march the streets of this town on August 20th to show unity, support and to bring attention to this critical and historical situation.

"Riverside IS the United States. Whatever happens here is happening all around the nation. We need to stand in firm opposition to the discrimination and anti-immigrant behavior that is hurting Riverside Latino's, Brazilians, businesses and property owners, " said Rev. Rivera. "CONLAMIC is extremely proud that the New Jersey Catholic Conference of Bishops has come forward to offer their support to this issue. They will be instrumental in the process of winning back the American dream that immigrants in Riverside and around the country seek."
