WASHINGTON, D.C. - There might be a shutdown in Washington, but it is not stopping a massive rally in the nation's capital to ask Congress to pass immigration reform.
On Tuesday the Camino Americano: March for Dignity and Respect will harness the power of national civic and labor leaders, entertainers, legislators and immigrants rights activists, but also the voices of DREAMers and children of undocumented immigrants.
The rally and march will start at noon EST with a reading of names of those who have died crossing the border.
The rally will also include music from entertainers like Los Tigres del Norte and Lila Downs, speeches from legislators such as Democratic New Jersey Senator Robert Menendez and Florida Republican Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart, prayers from religious leaders and speeches from children whose parents have been deported.
