A large crowd estimated at 2,000 took to downtown Minneapolis on Saturday to rally for immigration reform.

The rally took place, on the National Day of Action on Immigration reform, as many marched from the Basilica of St. Mary to the Hennepin County Government Center Plaza Saturday.

The Star Tribune reports the rally is a call to action for the U.S. House. Those rallying want the house to pass an immigration reform bill, like the one that cleared the U.S. Senate in June.

The marchers hoisted flags, and chntted "Sie se puede!" or "Yes we can!"

KARE 11 reports that those lawmakers who are opposed to immigration reform say they want other things to happen beforehand, including better security along the border with Mexico.

KSTP reports, that demonstrators want Congress to act on immigration reform before the end of the year.

The event was one of 100 that were held across the country.
