"Today is the day we move out of darkness and into God's light," the Rev. Steve Klemz from Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church told a modest but engaged crowd of Latinos on Thursday who had assembled for a "pray for citizenship" rally in front of the federal building offices of Sens. Orrin Hatch and Mike Lee.
Just before rush hour, a crowd of roughly 30 gathered at the immigration rally waving citizenship signs before reciting the rosary aloud in Spanish.
Klemz said he was pleased to see Hatch endorse a comprehensive immigration reform bill in committee but noted the bill calling for a path to citizenship still faces uncertain odds.
