(VOVworld)- Thousands of Americans took part in a protest Tuesday demanding that the House of Representatives take up immigration reform that will allow 11 million laborers to work legally and begin a 13-year naturalization process.  Police arrested some protesters, including 8 Congressmen, in front of the US Capitol. In June, the US Senate, led by the Democratic Party approved an immigration bill by a vote of 68 to 32. But the House of Representatives, led by the Republicans, drafted another bill, saying the previous bill was too loose.
