NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – At one Mother’s Day brunch in Jackson Heights, the topic in the front of everyone’s mind was immigration rights.
“I really want parents to be included in this because they are the original dreamers,” Make The Road New York Youth Coordinator Luba Cortez told WCBS 880’s Monica Miller.
“My mother has already been here 13 years, my aunt has been here 20 years. And to wait 13 years more, it’s like a lifetime. There’s people that don’t have 13 years,” Cortez said.
The senate plans to take up its bipartisan immigration reform bill on Tuesday.
