Different Perspectives From The Thousands Marching In Washington D.C. For Immigration Reform

Thousands of activists are descending on Washington D.C. to march for immigration reform.

As the nation waits to see the details inside the bipartisan senators' immigration proposal, supporters are rallying behind legislation that promotes a pathway of citizenship for the 11 million immigrants living in the U.S. illegally.

Individuals from both sides of the debate are turning to social media to share opinions and photos of the event.
