Valley activists in D.C. advocating for citizenship
The local non-profit La Union del Pueblo Entero were at a rally in Washington D.C. to show lawmakers that they want citizenship to be a priority in the $3.5 trillion reconciliation bill.
Advocates also showed up at the ICE headquarters and other locations after the Senate parliamentarian ruled that citizenship provisions cannot be part of the bill.
KRGV Channel 5 News reached out to Valley congressmen to ask them their positions on citizenship. They were unable to comment.
