Decatur protesters call for immigration reform

DECATUR -- The fight for immigration reform hit the streets of downtown Decatur Monday.

Dozens of people were marching to the front door of Congressman Rodney Davis' office, holding signs and shouting for change to the current U.S. immigration policies.

Some protesters said they've been fighting for this for more than ten years.

"We are right at the doorstep to get this passed," said Sonny Garcia of the Illinois People's Institute. "What we need is just congress to stop playing politics and pass immigration reform with a pathway to citizenship."

Protesters didn't get an immediate response from Davis, as his office was closed.  However they left a clear message behind that included some large protest posters.
