Please plan to stop by the Protect Oregon Driver Licenses booth at the Oregon State fair and located in Columbia Hall. Representative Kim Thatcher will be volunteering in our booth from 10am - 1:30pm.
Representative Kim Thatcher jumped at the opportunity to help concerned citizens across the state when she agreed to be a Chief Petitioner on the Protect Oregon Driver Licenses citizen's veto referendum. Her support - along with that of Representative Sal Esquivel and many others who have endorsed our referendum have been a great support to our efforts to overturn SB 833 - the new law granting state issued ID - in the form of a driver card - to those who can't prove legal presence in our country.
Please take the time to thank her for all she has done and continues to do for Oregon!

From the Salem 9-12 meeting announcement:
With the recent crisis on the border, with thousands of unaccompanied minors coming over in floods, with our government turning a blind eye and literally hiding their actions from public scrutiny, it's more important than ever for us to not turn a blind eye ourselves. We need to be aware of how Illegal Immigration is being addressed here in Oregon.

Friday August 8 - 6:30 pm
Scottish Rite Center
4090 Commercial St SE
Our guest speaker will be Cynthia Kendoll, from Oregonians for Immigration Reform. She will speak to us about the upcoming Ballot Measure 88 - Protect Oregon Driver Licenses referendum, as well as the recent nation-wide invasions and what we can do here in Oregon. If we don't stand up here, we might as well sit and turn that blind eye.
Cynthia Kendoll is President of Oregonians for Immigration Reform (OFIR), Authorized Agent and Statewide Campaign manager for the Protect Oregon Driver Licenses (PODL) citizen's veto referendum and an Advisory Board member of Colorado Alliance for Immigration Reform (CAIRCO).
Ongoing efforts to stay up-to-date with what's happening regarding immigration issues takes Cynthia to our southern border for the third time this September to attend National Sheriffs Border School and often to Washington DC to lobby Congress and meet with National immigration group leaders. In October, she will be a keynote speaker at a conference in DC.
For the past 14 months, Cynthia spearheaded the efforts to overturn SB 833 - the bill granting state issued ID - in the form of driver cards - to illegal aliens. Running a successful citizens veto referendum and now working toward the upcoming election campaign fills all of Cynthia's time.
