Thousands gather, call for immigration reform
WEST CHICAGO – Thousands gathered Saturday at West Chicago City Hall to ask U.S. Rep. Peter Roskam (R-Wheaton) to support immigration reform that includes a pathway to citizenship, according to a news release from the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights.
“The failure by House Republicans to move forward with immigration reform during July further jeopardizes the strained relationship they have with Latino and immigrant voters,” the release said.
According to the release, a majority of the U.S. House of Representatives supports comprehensive immigration reform, but House Republican leaders have refused to allow a vote on the issue.
