WINSTON-SALEM, N.C.-The Latin American Coalition, an immigrant rights organization based in Charlotte, delivered 76 bricks to U.S. Senator Richard Burr’s office Monday morning.

According to The Winston-Salem Journal, the group delivered the bricks in protest of Burr’s opposition to an immigration bill in the U.S. Senate last week.

“Senator Burr’s excuse is that the border is not secure enough, so we’re bringing him bricks so he can build a bigger wall,” Jess George, executive director of the Latin American Value Coalition, told the paper.

George said they delivered 76 bricks to represent the 76 percent of North Carolinians who, according to a statewide survey by Public Policy Polling, support immigration reform.

“He’s supposed to represent the people, but instead he’s rejecting something that the people want,” said Whitney Smith, development coordinator at the coalition. “Instead he’s creating a wall between 76 percent of North Carolinians and himself.”

If enacted, the bipartisan immigration bill, S. 774, would provide a pathway to citizenship for the 11 million immigrants with undocumented status in the United States.
