Where: American Memorial Park.

Why: To appeal to U.S President Barack Obama to take immediate action on the status of the alien workers in the CNMI and show support for the U.S. Secretary of Interior’s recommendations of long-term status for legal aliens who have resided in the CNMI for five years or more, and to urge U.S. Congress to act quickly on the recommendations.

Wasn't there already a petition signed showing support for this same purpose? If that's the case, why don't they work on just getting those that didn't sign to sign. Why reinvent the wheel?

You consistently misspell the President's name. It's Barack, not Barrack.

No, not at all the same petition or focus. The previous petition that got 7,000 signatures was before the DOI Report was issued and before we knew of the long delay in issuing the CNMI-only guest workers rules.

I will post the petition tomorrow.
