Washington, D.C. - On Monday, multiple immigration reform activists staged a small scale march near the White House and displayed a huge banner demanding for President Obama and Congress to stop deportations that lead to the separation of families, according to a Facebook posting by Reform Immigration for America. The activists are also pushing for the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee to allow amendments that would provide a path to citizenship for 11 million of undocumented immigrants, including their children residing in the country.
On Monday afternoon, the Committee began to hear Title II debates, which includes amendments dealing with the path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants. 
This is the last week that the Senate Judiciary Committee will consider any of the more than 300 amendments that have been submitted to be debated and approved to be included in the latest immigration reform bill before the full Senate gets it.
