Bronx residents join the fight for easier citizenship
Hundreds of Bronx residents joined immigrants from across the United States Saturday in the fight for an easier path to citizenship.Workers advocates are asking lawmakers to allow immigrants to get amnesty and become legal residents. Arguing that the immigrants have no government representing them, advocates say that immigrants are frequently victims of domestic abuse and exploitation by their employers.One long-time supporter of the cause is the Catholic Church. Cardinal Egan delivered an entire address to the crowd in Spanish and then gave a charge to the masses.The rally marked the end of the first Immigrant Workers Freedom Ride. It began in September with riders boarding buses from every corner in the country to send a message to Washington, D.C.
