The Time is Now. That was the rallying cry in downtown Danbury as a group of immigrants and supporters marched down Main Street to raise awareness about the need for immigration reform. Tribuna Newspaper Editor Emanuela Leaf says the whole system needs to be changed.
Leaf says about 35-percent of Danbury's population is made up of immigrants, but it's not known what percentage are undocumented. She notes that the line a lot of people talk about and the need to get in line, can happen and undocumented immigrants can then file for citizenship.
Rally co-organizer Carolina Bortolleto is part of a group of students working for passage of the DREAM Act for citizenship.
The U-S Senate is expected to debate a plan this week.
