BOISE -- Following last week's work in the U.S. Senate, immigration reform is one-step closer to becoming a law.

A group of immigration supporters is doing the ground work here in the Gem State to let our lawmakers know how important this is for them.

Gathering in Wilder Monday, about two dozen people set off in a symbolic path of immigrants who have come to America.

Members of the Idaho Community Action Network say they hope they're on a path to freedom.

Most undocumented Americans are hard workers who came here to build a better life for their families. They make a huge contribution to our country they now call home, said one activist.

Activists will be walking 30-miles from Wilder to Meridian over the next three days where they'll end at the steps of Congressman Raul Labrador's door.

It will be a long hot walk for their mission.
