Pro-Immigration Supporters Try To Raise Awareness At Palmer Event Center

Updated: Sunday, August 18 2013, 08:24 PM CDT

As the battle over immigration reform continues, several people in Austin are trying to put pressure on lawmakers and to get support.

Today, demonstrators reached out to people attending a quincenera trade show at the Palmer Events Center.

Several immigration reform groups targeted people attending the event in hopes of getting them to join the fight for immigration reform.

They passed out information and talked to people about what they could do to help.

Jerusalen Garcia Jordan stated, “Immigration reform hits really close to home because both my parents are immigrants from Mexico. I know I’m only one of the hundreds of thousands of children here in the us who were born here who don’t want to see our families get separated.”

Just last week, the Republican National Committee passed a resolution calling on the president and congress to pass immigration reform before the end of the year.
