Thousands Rally for Immigration Reform Stalled by Gov't Shutdown
VOA Video: Thousands Rally for Immigration Reform Stalled by Gov't Shutdown

The measure could offer undocumented immigrants amnesty and a pathway to citizenship. For supporters, who rallied in Washington this week, each day the government remains closed is another blow to progress. But opponents argue the shutdown provides more time to discuss the controversial issue. Arash Arabasadi has more.
