Congressman Visits Yakima To Gain Support

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash.-- One congressman is trying to build some support for immigration reform in GOP congressional districts.

Congressman Luis Gutierrez was in Yakima on Saturday as part of his tour to gain support for immigration reform.

He is visiting areas where the local economy is heavily dependent on immigrant workers.

Congressman Gutierrez was in Hood River, Oregon earlier in the day discussing immigration reform before heading to Yakima.

He plans on visiting Florida next as part of his tour.

The local rally happened at the Unitarian Universalist Church in Downtown Yakima.
