Immigration Reform rallies reach Pasco

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash;-- Demonstrations reached the Tri-Cities area as hundreds gathered in Pasco to rally for Immigration Reform.

There were of course thousands of rallies going on today across the country as the discussion of Immigration Reform in Arizona continues to heat up.

Arizona's new Immigration Law essentially makes it a crime to be in the state illegally and it allows police to stop people they suspect are undocumented. The outcry over this law has now reached the Tri-Cities.

"So far here we don't see any affected yet, but we don't want it to happen here," Rudy Cartagena said.

We have also talked with people who support the law and say it is smart to always carry identification to prevent problems with police; however, those rallying today expect more gatherings to happen in the future.
