Ala Immigrants Planning Rally, March in Birmingham
Immigrants and their backers are planning a rally and march in Birmingham to show their support for changes in federal immigrations laws.
Organizers say they are expecting hundreds of people for a demonstration planned for Wednesday evening in a downtown park.
The Alabama Coalition for Immigrant Justice says one goal of the protest is to show U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions that Alabamians support immigration reform.
Sessions is among the Republican opponents of legislation that critics say amounts to amnesty for people living in the country illegally.
Similar rallies are being planned in other U.S. cities.
