Local leaders, activists rally for Immigration Reform Bill

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Many people gathered on the steps of the St. Joseph County Courthouse in support of the Comprehensive Immigration Reform Bill.
 
The preliminary vote in the Senate passed with a large margin; 82 Senators voted in favor of the bill and only 15 voted against it. 
 
Michiana residents, activists and leaders rallied to keep the fire burning under the Immigration Reform Bill that will move to make the immigration process run more efficiently. "For it to take 15 to 20 years for a family to become a U.S. citizen that is just way beyond extremes." explained community organizer, Jesusa Rivera.
 
If this bill passes, it will keep families together and to enforce labor laws and worker’s rights for immigrants. Mayor Pete Buttigieg says he fully supports the bill. "The opportunity before us that is hitting the floors of Congress right now to fix our broken immigration system is just one of those issues that demands attention and activity from all of us."
