National immigration reform caravan crosses into Wisconsin

Local News

Wis. (WLAX/WEUX) – A nationwide call for immigration reform is making its way through Wisconsin. The March to Victory Relay crossed into the state Tuesday, symbolized by the passing of a torch. Supporters are calling on the Biden Administration to stop deportation and provide citizenship for all.

Even though the message is reaching across the country, advocates say change can start closer to home.

Jose Rubio-Zepeda, with Coulee Region Immigration Task Force, said, “One of the big things is to really work with family members to really check our biases, to bring about that awareness to family members who may not necessarily agree with immigration.”

The caravan is crossing thirty states before arriving in Washington D.C. on May 1, marking the end of President Biden’s first one hundred days in office.

The torch will head to Wisconsin Dells on Thursday.
