Big push for immigration reform
WASHINGTON, D.C. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - We're watching Washington Tuesday, and a big push on immigration reform.
More than 600 leaders from nearly 100 congressional districts from across the country are expected in DC Tuesday for a rally.
Immigration legislation has stalled in the House.
Earlier this year the Senate passed a comprehensive bill that would provide a path to citizenship while tightening border security.
Most House republicans reject a comprehensive approach and many question offering citizenship to people who broke U.S. immigration laws to be in this country.
It's estimated there are 11-million immigrants living in the U.S. illegally.
