Immigration Reform Supporters March to Boise Capitol

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Hundreds of immigration supporters and activists rallied and marched in Boise calling for changes in federal laws and better access to work and benefits.

More than 700 people from around Idaho and eastern Oregon chanted pro-immigration slogans while marching down Boise’s Capitol Boulevard to the Capitol Mall. Two themes dominated — keeping families together and giving immigrants access to work, benefits and school. Wednesday’s rally was part of the May Day activities that took place across the country, with calls for changes in the federal government’s immigration system.

Twenty-three-year-old Nampa resident Maria Cuevas has spent most of her life in the United States — yet she says it’s difficult to have people ask her if she’s an immigrant. Her children are citizens; now, Cuevas says she wants the same status.
