Immigration reform protesters hope their efforts have paid off in Kalamazoo

KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- For the last month Michigan United has been demonstrating outside Congressman Fred Upton’s downtown Kalamazoo office, demanding he support Immigration Reform.

They have dumped off piles of apples and even staged a sit-in last week.

This week, now that Upton has pledged to attempt to get Immigration reform taken care of before New Years, they are sending him a big “Thank You” card.

On it are the pictures of 30 children from his district who have seen parents or relatives deported or sanctioned in other ways because they are not citizens.

Its not clear they both define immigration reform the same way, but its movement.
