BROOKLYN - Hundreds in favor of immigration reform are holding a rally in Cadman Plaza this afternoon and the crowd is expected to grow to thousands as people call on Congress to pass immigration reform.

Immigration activists say they want Congress to take action on immigration reform, passing laws to keep families together and provide an easier path to citizenship. Those at the rally say they also want Congress to bring fairness to the immigration system.

Brooklyn's rally is one of many being held today nationwide. The rally will continue later with a march across the Brooklyn Bridge.
