Rally held to show support of immigration law changes

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -

Hundreds of people in Birmingham are being vocal about their support of changes to federal immigration laws. They made their statement with an immigration rally in downtown Birmingham Wednesday night.

The Alabama Coalition for Immigrant Justice says one goal of the protest is to show Senator Jeff Sessions that Alabamians support immigration reform. Senator Sessions has been outspoken about the immigration reform proposals from the "gang of eight." He says it is ambiguous on border control and merely seeks to provide amnesty to some 11-million illegal immigrants.
