Hundreds rally in Downtown Dallas for Immigration Reform

Posted: Updated:

Parts of downtown Dallas were shut down because hundreds of people marched for comprehensive immigration reform.

Not as many showed up like they did in 2006 when hundreds of thousands turned out. Still, there were several thousand people who peacefully made their way to the City Hall Plaza.    

Marchers said they want to send a strong message to Republicans and Democrats. They won't accept anything but a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants.

"We are marching here today to show the American public that we're ready to take on the streets and we are also ready to take over the vote. Today we are marching tomorrow we are going to be voting. Early elections already happen for the city council and school districts and there are people out there voting already," said Marco Malagon, leader of the North Texas Dream Team.

A bi-partisan group in the Senate has come up with a bill that would legalize many of the estimated 11 million undocumented workers who now live and work here.

President Obama says it's a good bill and one he would sign into law.
