Dozens Rally in Charlottesville for Immigration Reform
Supporters of immigration reform gathered Wednesday night to share personal stories about how current policies have affected them.
Dozens gathered on the downtown mall to show their support of a comprehensive immigration reform bill. They say they want Congress to pass a bill that provides a clear path to citizenship.
One community advocate who came to the U.S. 14 years ago says it is heartbreaking to see families being torn apart because of current immigration laws.
"I can see firsthand all the struggles that the families that are here illegally, that they have to go through - especially those families that have been apart because of immigration and because of deportation issues," said Adriana Haynes.
Wednesday night was part of a statewide event working to bring awareness to the proposed immigration legislation.
