Locals rally for immigration reform

Across America, many are calling for comprehensive immigration reform.  Today in the Quad Cities, dozens came out to Casa de Los Niño's in Moline to rally support.  They say it's time to care for the 11 million undocumented immigrants by providing better medical care and improved rights, regardless of their legal
status. Leslie Kilgannon of Quad Cities Interfaith says the current system is broken, "What is happening now with our immigration system is inhumane. They're tearing families apart with deportations."
