The March for Migrants caravan begins nationwide tour

A migrants' rights caravan kicked off a nationwide tour from the border fence in San Diego Thursday. KPBS Reporter Amy Isackson has the story.

The March for Migrants will travel across the country to Washington D.C. to discuss immigration reform with members of Congress. March organizer and longtime immigrants' rights activist Enrique Morones says they'll stop in 20 cities and collect migrants' stories along the way. He says that will help them present an accurate portrait of migrants in the United States to Congress and ask for appropriate help.

The Senate is set to consider immigration legislation later this month. Immigrants' rights activists say the version the House passed last December is unrealistic, racist and unenforceable, and they need to help educate the country and Congress as to why.
