Immigrant groups around the country are planning Labor Day events to continue to press for comprehensive immigration reform.  In Knoxville, the event is planned for Monday, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. at Victor Ashe Park.  There will be major gatherings occurring in Washington D.C., Chicago, Los Angeles, and other major cities as well.  September is the last month that the current Congress will be in session and, though few hold any expectation of something happening in September, it is important to continue to advocate for positive change.
