Immigration rally to be held in Richmond's Byrd Park

Posted: Updated:
RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

A rally for immigration reform will be held in Richmond's Byrd Park Monday.

It will be held at 6 p.m. Among those in attendance will be Linda Cedillos, whose husband was sent back to Honduras after illegally crossing the border years ago. Monday is their five year wedding anniversary.

Cedillos and other immigrants are calling for an immigration waiver to pass in Washington. That way, a judge might allow her husband, to reunite with Linda and their daughter.

The Richmond Tea Party's director says allowing millions of undocumented immigrants a path to citizenship would hurt the economy.
