Supporters of immigration reform held a rally Wednesday at the Old State House, and then proceeded to march to the Capitol for another rally. The event was organized by Connecticut Immigrant Rights Alliance, and coincided with the National Rally for Citizenship across the country. Hundreds of people participated in the event in Hartford. Jose Lezcares, with his daughter, Naomi, 2, on his shoulder, said he participated in the rally to support his family and his community. Originally from Mexico, and now a resident of New Britain, Lezcares participated in the march and rally.
