Organizing for Action plans immigration rallies outside Mica, Rubio offices



Organizing for Action, the new group that picked up where President Obama's campaign machine left off, is holding events across Florida this week to rally support for immigration reform.

Tonight, organizers will go to Margate City Hall, where the city commission is taking up a resolution supporting immigration reform. OFA urged them to "bring a sign that reads, "Thank You Margate, Thanks for your Support, or Margate Supports Immigration Reform."

On Thursday afternoon, from 4 to 6 p.m., the group will rally outside U.S. Rep. John Mica's office in Maitland.

And next Wednesday, they will show up at Sen. Marco Rubio's Orlando office. Wednesday is the same day of a major pro-reform rally in Washington, D.C.

"Join organizations from across Central Florida as we rally support for Immigration Reform and demand Senator Rubio to take action. We are meeting in front of City Hall and then marching to Senator Rubio's office," a group message reads.
