Immigrant advocates plan walk from Miami to Washington
MIAMI, FL – A coalition of local immigrant advocacy groups will take part next month in a 2,000-mile walk from Miami to Washington, D.C., to urge passage of legislation that would allow illegal immigrants to become legalized U.S. residents and citizens.
Called the “Trail of DREAMS,” the organizations are trying to build momentum for the latest immigration reform bill that was introduced this week in Congress.
Organizers said the walk, to begin Jan. 1, is a project of Students Working for Equal Rights (SWER), a Miami-based organization affiliated with the Florida Immigrant Coalition. To read the full story click here.
