Tom Rooney It’s Time to Move Comprehensive Immigration Forward OFA Volunteers Across the Country are Telling Congress: Do Your Job--Fix Our Broken Immigration System Punta Gorda, FL – This Saturday, Aug. 31st at 12pm, OFA-FL volunteers and supporters in the Punta Gorda will be holding a grassroots event to tell Rep. Tom Rooney that it’s time for Congress to do the right thing for our country and pass comprehensive immigration reform. Organizing for Action volunteers understand that our broken immigration system constitutes a major problem, and that Congress has the keys to fix it.  It's a solution that will not only address the outdated system, but also create jobs, grow our economy, strengthen our middle class, and reaffirm the American dream for this generation and generations to come. That's why OFA volunteers and a broad coalition of supporters are telling Congress to pass comprehensive immigration reform. OFA volunteers nationwide are spending the August congressional recess organizing their communities around the issues the American people voted for in 2012, like immigration reform, affordable healthcare, combating climate change, gun violence prevention and a better bargain for the middle class, among others. OFA’s “Action August” volunteers will make it clear to their representatives in Washington that they expect them to put the American people before D.C. politics. Who: OFA-FL volunteers and supporters of comprehensive immigration reform from the Punta Gorda community When: 12:00 PM on Saturday, Aug. 31 Where: Rep. Tom Rooney's Office, 226 Taylor Street, Punta Gorda, FL About Organizing For Action                  Organizing for Action (OFA) is a non-profit, non-partisan organization dedicated to advancing the policies that the American people voted for in 2012.  In just six months, more than 3.1 million volunteers have taken action through Organizing for Action.  As a grassroots funded social advocacy group, OFA is committed to tipping the scales of power back to the American people instead of special interests in Washington.  OFA is working to advance policies like job creation, strengthening the middle class, gun violence prevention, comprehensive immigration reform and measures combating climate change that a majority of the American people support.
