Obama’s group, Organizing for Action, not drawing crowds

President Obama’s former highly effective campaign machine, now known as Organizing for Action, has turned its sites on immigration reform, but it appears the magic is gone. At an immigration rally on Monday, they drew a massive crowd of eight.

With signs that read, “We are all immigrants” and “Immigration reform now” the small group stood in front of the office of U.S. Rep. Pete Visclosky, D-Ind., in support of the immigration reform bill signed in the Senate last week, reported the NWI Times.

The bill has gone to the House, but it is unclear whether it will be passed there. OFA members are making an effort to hold grass-roots events at the offices of representatives across the country to garner support.

The group also organized rallies in Tennessee and outside House Speaker John Boehner’s Ohio office, which brought out 20 and 25 people, respectively, according to the Washington Free Beacon.

“The main focus for our organization is to get people together and light a fire under the local politicians’ feet,” Cheryl Laux, Organizing for Action Central Indiana Chapter leader, told Anna Ortiz of the Times.
