EL PASO (KTSM) — The Nuns on the Bus have been touring all over the country trying to ouch for a comprehensive immigration reform. And on Tuesday morning, they made one last pit stop at the Annunciation House.
Supporters who attended were drawn in to the speech and Director of the Annunciation House Ruben Garcia said the group is making a huge change.
“They are making a change because in senate, congress is beginning to see that there is a ground swell that is asking for immigration reform now," said Garcia.
He said the group is taking a six thousand mile journey across the United States in support of the Comprehensive Immigration Reform.
The Senate voted 82 to 15 on Tuesday to allow debate on the Immigration Reform Bill to move forward.
The bill will likely dominate senate business through the Fourth of July holiday.
