People supporting immigration reform rallied in front of Republican Representative for Nevada's 3rd District Joe Heck's office Tuesday morning.
The Nevada State AFL-CIO, PLAN, Mi Familia Vota, Dream Big Vegas and others delivered petition cards signed by people living in Heck's constituency in support of the immigration reform bill already passed by the U.S. Senate.
"We're dropping off petition cards from constituents that say their personal story of why they support immigration reform. They urge him to act as a leader within his own party, especially when the GOP meets tomorrow to discuss immigration reform," state coordinator for Mi Familia Vota Marisol Montoya Herrera said.
The legislation is now set to go before the U.S. House. The bill would increase border security, track people overstaying their visas, and crack down on employers hiring undocumented workers.
