FREEHOLD, N.J. (AP) — Dozens of people have taken to the streets in a central New Jersey town to call for reforms in the nation’s immigration laws.
Among those who marched Saturday to the Latino Festival of Monmouth County in Freehold were immigrants from several countries and members of labor unions and community activists group.
The events were part of the “National Day for Dignity and Respect,” which organizers said was a coordinated effort in 80 cities across the country to bring reform with a path to citizenship for 11 million undocumented immigrants.
Some counter-protesters were also on hand for the event, but authorities say no problems were reported.
