LOS ANGELES – Thousands of protesters gathered at the corner of Olympic Boulevard and Broadway Street to march in support of immigration reform Wednesday afternoon. The march began around noon and headed toward Paseo de la Plaza. Several groups attended including workers advocates, labor unions, LGBTQ organizations and several Latino and Korean groups. Last month, President Barrack Obama backed an 844 page immigration reform bill that would provide a path to citizenship for more than 11 million undocumented people.
