Community rallies for immigration reform in South Bend


Several people gathered in downtown South Bend today for an immigration reform rally.

Organizers of the event say they want to inform the community about immigration reform, as well as encourage people to be outspoken.

The Northern Indiana Coalition for Immigration reform wants to encourage Congresswoman Jackie Walorski to support comprehensive immigration reform in the House of Representatives.

Felipe Merino, an attorney and member of the Northern Indiana Coalition for Immigration reform says,  "If there ever was a silver bullet that could be shot into the economy to stimulate it, it's immigration reform."

Merino also says that people underestimate the impact that Congresswoman Jackie Walorski could have in the House.
