Faith and Community Leaders to Pray for Citizenship

Posted By on June 27, 2013, 9:58 AM

DREAM Act students, together with faith and community leaders, will conduct a prayer vigil tonight in front of the Wallace Bennett Federal Building for a "road map" for citizenship for America's 11 million undocumented.---

Since June 12, the Salt Lake Dream Team has been hosting daily vigils in front of the building, where Sens. Mike Lee and Orrin Hatch have their offices. It's part of a national campaign for citizenship of prayer vigils both in Utah and across the United States "until a road map for citizenship becomes a reality for all undocumented Americans," according to a press release put out by the DREAM team.

Clergy and members from the Catholic Diocese of Salt Lake City are expected to join the vigil to encourage Hatch and Lee to support " a fair and direct path to citizenship," the press release noted.

The vigil will take place between 6 and 8.30 p.m. at the federal building, 125 S. State, Salt Lake City.
