Illinois Residents March for Immigration Reform in Washington

One group left out of the health care reform bill? Immigrants. Thousands of them are coming back home to Illinois today after protesting in Washington yesterday for an immigration overhaul. But some others are staying on in the nation's capital today. They're trying to build political pressure following a rally by tens of thousands of people on the National Mall. WBEZ's Chip Mitchell is reporting on their trip and joins us from Washington.

Music Button: Tommy Guerrero, "Create and Destroy", from the CD From The Soil To The Soul, (Quannum Projects)
