BROOKLYN - Brooklyn Catholics from 28 different ethnic groups filled the Basilica of St. James for the annual Migration Mass.

The Brooklyn residents were joined by Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio, Sen. Charles Schumer and other officials who are focusing on immigration reform.

Sen. Schumer is a part of the "gang of eight," a group of senators working toward a bill that they say would bring 11 million immigrants towards citizenship.

Most who attended today's Mass say they support immigration reform, but others say they are concerned about the effects it could have on the economy and wages.
