MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A prominent local union is organizing a march in Minneapolis in favor of immigration reform.
The Service Employees International Union Local 26 is holding the march Sunday at 3 p.m. It starts at 38th Street and Pleasant Avenue.
The group plans to collect signatures for a petition to be sent to President Obama seeking reforms to a system they fear will result in thousands of immigrant workers losing their jobs.
The Obama administration has signaled it intends to enforce immigration laws not by workplace sweeps but rather auditing I-9 employment forms in workplaces across the U.S.
