Immigration Reform Rally Scheduled for Today

Thousands expected at the Capitol


(Reuters)—Supporters of immigration reform are set to rally at the Capitol on Wednesday to back legislation that would include a path to citizenship for an estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants.

The National Rally for Citizenship, which organizers say will draw tens of thousands of demonstrators, comes after two senior senators said on Sunday that an immigration reform bill would likely be completed in their chamber this week.
