AUSTIN (KRLD) – Hundreds of people from North Texas and across the state marched on the State Capitol in Austin Tuesday in opposition to tougher proposed state immigration laws.

The Capitol steps were filled with hundreds of immigration protesters that marched to the statehouse calling for a federal solution to the immigration issue.

The protesters say Texas should not pass new laws, saying the solution to the immigration issue should be left to Congress and not to the state legislature.

“We need a broad federal solution that recognizes the contributions of immigrants,” says Isabel Morales of El Paso.

Morales and other speakers say local and state government’s passing piecemeal immigration policy doesn’t address the entire problem, the only way to do that is with federal legislation
