People March for Worker's on May Day

Posted: Updated:

HERMISTON, Ore. -- People gathered in Hermiston Thursday night for an immigration rally.
People I talked to say May day is Worker's Day in honor of immigrant worker's, both past and present. They say they hope by marching today they unite people and hopefully get laws changed.

One of those laws would give immigrants in Oregon a driver's license and papers of they worked in the U.S. for 5 months. People I talked to say it is important that people stand together as more anti-immigration laws continue to be passed.

They say they hope today's marches around the country unite people. United Farm Worker's Arturo Sepulveda says with the marches, "The spirit of struggle from the community will grow, and also people will see we can be united, our voices can be heard. "

Marches like the one in Hermiston were being held around the country Thursday for Worker's Day.
