March to Hanna's Office for Immigration reform
9/5/2013 (Updated 11:02:04 PM)A march for passage of immigration reform:
On Thursday, local clergy and members of the community walked from the United Presbyterian Church of Binghamton to Congressman Richard Hanna's office.
They called it a "pathway to citizenship" for eleven million undocumented immigrants.
"It means an opportunity for 11 million people to come out of the shadows and become taxpayers and contributing members of our society and not to hide, and it really unites families," said Mary Clark the regional director of Citizen Action.
According to Citizen Action, comprehensive immigration reform would create almost 15-thousand jobs in Hanna's congressional district alone, and would decrease the national deficit by 200 billion dollars over the next ten years.
