Many immigration supporters opposed to details of senate bill
TUCSON, Ariz. – Immigration advocates gathered at Tucson, Arizona’s, John Valenzuela Youth Center Sunday to talk about the proposed immigration reform in the United States Senate.
Most speakers were critical of the bill.
Murphy Woodhouse is a University of Arizona graduate student and part of the End Streamline Coalition. He said the proposed increase in border security is militarization.
“This is really going to change life along the US-Mexico border,” Woodhouse said, “in a lot of ways that people probably won’t be comfortable with.”
Josue Saldivar is in the U.S. on an expired visa. He does not have to worry about being deported because he has applied for Deferred Action status. Saldivar is hopeful that will help him become a citizen, but he does not think the Senate’s plan is perfect.
“There is a special treatment for certain individuals, myself included,” he said. “Dreamers will have an expedited road to citizenship.”
