LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3) -- Hundreds rallied and marched through downtown Las Vegas Sunday pushing for immigration reform.
The march and rally went from Fremont and Main and ended near the federal courthouse.
Various groups gathered with some form of unity throughout most of the afternoon, rallying for the federal government to pass comprehensive immigration reform.
They came from all generations and held American flags, showing pride to live in the United States.
While immigration is a complicated issue, the main concern among this crowd was not tearing families apart.
Astrid Silva, an undocumented student, also has been monitoring the proposed dream act as a path to citizenship for young people.
“It was something that affected us at the college level, but we're starting to see that Congress has been working on comprehensive immigration reform that would really help everybody whose here without papers,” she said, “because most of the time it’s because of circumstances of the system being broken, not necessarily the people.”
The activists say expect more marches and rallies in the coming months, including one in Washington.
