MIAMI (AP) — Miami’s newest immigrants will march through one of the city’s oldest Cuban enclaves Saturday as part of a nationwide effort to spotlight the need for immigration reform.

The afternoon march through Little Havana is one of nearly half a dozen around the state and more than 160 around the country.

Other rally sites include Lake Worth, Lakeland, Tampa and Orlando.

Earlier this week, Florida made news when South Florida freshman U.S. Rep. Joe Garcia was among the main sponsors of a new immigration bill in the House. The Democrat-backed bill combined much of the Senate’s immigration proposal with a streamlined border security section that Republicans in the House previously supported. GOP leaders are unlikely to bring that bill to the floor, though.
