Support For Immigration Reform In Worthington

January 29, 2013, 6:15 PM by Stephanie Gregory

Support For Immigration Reform In Worthington
WORTHINGTON, MN -

The President says the Senate proposal he's supporting could give approximately 11 million illegal immigrants a path to citizenship.

While it has bi-partisan support in the Senate, Republicans in the House are already lining up in opposition.

Immigration is a hot topic in a place like Worthington, Minnesota, where just six years ago federal officers raided a local meat packing plant and arrested hundreds of illegal immigrants.

"I do think that the immigration reform would be a great thing.  It would be a very nice blessing to the families of the community that have children that were born here and maybe they weren't," Panaderia Mi Tierra owner Kerry Cuate said. 

Cuate says it can take a long time for immigrants to get their legal status. She knows this firsthand.  Her husband and his family came to America several decades ago. He became a US citizen last year.

"It takes a lot of worry off your mind when you're able to be here and do the things you need to do and have legal status," Cuate said.

Cuate says, above all, families with children in Worthington could benefit the most.

"It would just really work to unite families and keep people together and give even brighter opportunities to those children that are growing up as well," Cuate said.

Even if Congress is not on the same page as the President, the people might be. A recent CBS News poll shows that 51 percent of Americans think illegal immigrants working in the U.S. should be able to stay and apply for citizenship.
