Demonstrators gather in Willmar: Group holds May Day rally for immigration reform


WILLMAR — More than 80 adults and children came to Willmar on Thursday seeking immigration reform on International Worker’s Day.

The group arrived on a bus and stopped at U.S. Rep. Collin Peterson’s office in downtown Willmar. They visited with Peterson’s office staff and rallied in front of the office before boarding the bus for a trip to the Twin Cities.

They were seeking immigration reform and an end to deportations that separate families.
