Coalition For Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles

Posted: Updated:
The stunning defeat of Virginia congressman Eric Cantor in the primary earlier this month could have a profound impact on immigration reform in this country. Cantor appeared to be open to some sort of amnesty program, but he was defeated by Dave Bratt, a Tea Party favorite who is on record as taking a hard line on immigration.

We'll discuss immigration reform with Rita Medina from the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles. CHIRLA was founded in 1983 in response to the number of people arriving in Los Angeles from Central America. The community-based agency has become the most influential organization of its kind in Southern California.

CHIRA is located at 2533 West 3rd Street in Los Angeles. The telephone number is (213) 353-1333. CHIRLA's website is www.chirla.org

    Of all the world's religions, Buddhism is one of the most mysterious and most intriguing to many Americans. The books The Dharma Bums, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance and even If You Meet the Buddha on the Road, Kill Him!, are all examples of how Buddhist concepts are part of the American cultural landscape.
