CLOVIS, N.M. (KRQE) – A group from New Mexico is fed up with congress’s slow pace on immigration reform and is demanding change now.
Saturday’s protest comes in conjunction with dozens of groups across the nation affiliated with the organization, Somos Un Pueblo Unido.
The group said families in Curry County have seen an increase in detention, deportation, and separation of families over the years.
The protest is part of a national day of action to stop deportation.
They hope the day’s march will encourage congress to speed up its process and pass immigration reform now.
