Activists Protest For Immigration Reform

Immigration reform supporters continued to push for action this weekend, with both legislators and activists taking to the streets to further their cause.

Families gathered on Saturday to keep pressure on the House to support a pathway to citizenship for the 11 million undocumented immigrants in the country. The families, who worked with the advocacy group the Fair Immigration Reform Movement (FIRM), protested in the home states of several key GOP leaders including Speaker Boehner of Ohio, and Majority Leader Eric Cantor of Virginia.

“Our demand is simple,” said FIRM spokesperson Kica Matos. “Pass an immigration reform bill in the House by August 2 that one includes a path to citizenship and that two keeps families together.”

Meantime, some of the very leaders the families sought to pressure were traveling to other states to push reform forward- including Rep. Cantor.
