Immigration Reform Advocates Converge On State Capitol
(St. Paul, MN) -- Congressman Keith Ellison wasn't there because he's ill, but advocates still gathered at the State Capitol today (Wed) to voice support for President Obama's immigration reform plan. Luis Enrique (en-REE'-kay) from Veracruz, Mexico says he's been in Minnesota 14 years working in mushroom farms, lives in Saint Cloud and is facing a March 8th deportation order. Enrique says wants to stay in Minnesota with his kids because he loves them and they love him. Enrique says he hopes immigration reform progresses very quickly and that he's able to stop his deportation order.
