Immigration rally draws hundreds in Ohio

SPRINGFIELD, Ohio (AP) — Organizers say several hundred people took part in an immigration reform rally in Ohio outside U.S. House Speaker John Boehner’s (BAY’-nur) office.

It was one of dozens of rallies across the nation to call for reforms in the nation’s immigration laws.

The events Saturday were part of the “National Day for Dignity and Respect.”

Immigrant families, religious leaders and union representatives were among those attending the rally in Springfield in southwest Ohio.
