WATCH: In Capitol’s shadow, a spotlight on immigration reform


The Fast for Families movement for comprehensive immigration reform has been going on for nearly a month now. The protest has garnered substantial media attention over the past several weeks, with President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama visiting with the fasters to show their support. A host of Congressional representatives from both parties have also visited with the fasters, with some even participating in the fast on a rotating basis.
