Local immigrants demand reform during march in Allentown

ALLENTOWN, Pa. - Immigration reform is taking center stage in Allentown.

Local immigrants marched into U.S. Rep. Charlie Dent's office Wednesday afternoon. They want him to encourage his fellow House Republicans to vote in favor of a bipartisan immigration bill that passed the Senate last year.

Dent wasn't in the office Wednesday, but the group was able to voice its concerns to one of his representatives.

The congressman later released a statement, saying that he agrees changes are necessary, but he said that change is going to come in small, reasonable steps.
