Hundreds attend immigration reform rally

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA (CBS ATLANTA) -

Hundreds of Georgians took to the state capitol Saturday to rally for immigration reform.

The Georgia Latino Alliance for Human Rights was among several groups to sponsor the event.

Organizers said it's time for the country to do something about fixing the immigration system.

CEO of Dream Weavers Atlanta, Sean Bennett, said "immigration reform is something that's not going away; the county has to make choices for the 12 to 13 million illegal immigrants in the United States."

Organizers said families are being separated by a lack of immigration reform, and they hope Saturday's event will bring the issue to the attention of state and federal leaders.
