Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney will visit Century City Tuesday for a campaign fundraiser at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza, and two groups are planning events outside the hotel.
Representatives from the L.A. County Democratic Party are expected to stage a news conference outside the hotel about Romney's positions on immigration and "issues affecting everyday Americans," said Eric C. Bauman, chair of the L.A. Democratic Party. The news conference was scheduled for 4:30 p.m.
Protesters calling themselves a "Coalition of the 99 Percent" will march to the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza after holding a news conference outside the offices of Beverly Hills Unified School District. Young illegal immigrants and elected officials will speak about Romney's opposition to the DREAM Act. The act would grant permanent residency to illegal immigrants who arrived in the United States as minors, have graduated from high school or completed two years at a four-year college or in military service, and have lived in the country for at least five years before the bill is passed.
