Groups rally in San Francisco for immigration reform
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Supporters of immigration reform held a rally in San Francisco Wednesday afternoon as part of a national day of action. They took their message to the federal building with demands for a path to citizenship for all.
There's word from the nation's capital that a bi-partisan group of senators reached an agreement on a broad immigration bill. The New York Times reports it would require tough border measures be enforced before undocumented immigrants could take the first steps to become American citizens.
Demonstrators want legislation that ensures civil and human rights protections.
"What we are really calling for is immigration reform that includes everyone who is here and has plans for the future that just doesn't put more border patrol agents at the border," Cinthya Munoz said.
The new comprehensive immigration reform bill is expected to be unveiled Thursday.
