New findings for immigration reform plan

YAKIMA, Wash.-- Union leaders here in Washington tried to apply some pressure on Congress to support immigration reform.

The Washington Federation of State Employees and the Washington Growers League held a news conference at the Yakima Valley Museum to urge Representative Doc Hastings to endorse the plan.

Union leaders maintain changing the immigration rules would create more jobs and provide a safer work environment.

"We should not allow people who work hard, a days work, to be way underpaid, to be threatened, to be abused and to not receive any kind of respect in the workplace," Union leader Sue Henricksen said.

They also claim immigration reform would add money to Social Security and Medicare.
