Pasco Immigration Rally

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash. - Protesters were seen Tuesday afternoon outside the headquarters of La Voz, a Hispanic newspaper located off Court Street. 

About 100 people showed up, which is significantly less than last year.  Organizers said Hispanic leaders of the Tri-Cities community did not united and organize like they did last year.  Protesters said many people were in work today and it was raining.

La Vos publisher and CEO David Cortinas said that the Hispanic community is waiting in limbo for the various sides of government to make decisions. 

He said despite the turn out many people are still upset with the current immigration laws.  He said many want more illegal immigrants to be able to become citizens. 

Cortinas said, "Lots of promises are being made by this president.  Legislation doesn't get passed. It looks like a tug of war and we don't get anything done."

The protesters were outside for about two hours.
