BROWNSVILLE, TEXAS (KVEO NEWSCENTER 23) — Dozens of University of Texas at Brownsville students held signs and let their voices be heard when it comes to immigration reform.
"What do you want to see change? Some legitimate laws that allow people to come to United States without having to go through red tape.said UTB Senior Manuel Bernal.
“Why are you marching today? I am strongly for the immigration reform and for the Dream act." Said UTB student Karla Lorzoa.
Karla Lorzoa is a UTB student and has friends that are not US citizens. She says they deserve a chance to live in the united states and get an education.
"I know a lot of them, they are outstanding students and I believe it's a well deserved chance." Said Lorzoa.
The students continued the march to the Student Union Lawn where they continue their strong message for immigration reform.
"We are not criminals, we all come here to work, we don't stand and ask for money we don't do that, as Mexicans we come here and ask for a job." Said one UTB student.
