LOS ANGELES, CA – Today, Congressman Raúl Grijalva (D-AZ) received the Community Service Award for his commitment to immigrant rights and to fair immigration reform at the CARECEN 31st Annual Awards Dinner. Rep. Grijalva released the following statement:
“It is an honor to be recognized with CARECEN’s Community Service Award. CARECEN has given voice to the voiceless and stood up for those in need – I’m proud to be a partner in the vital work they do.
“Immigrants built this country; immigrants sustained it; and immigrants will continue to make this the strongest nation in the world. Our broken system undermines this rich history, upending lives and splintering families. I will continue fighting to bring relief to those impacted by this ongoing tragedy, and I am grateful to have CARECEN by my side.”
