The US Senate debates the immigration bill again today. Wausau plays host to a rally against illegal immigration tonight.

Illegal immigration. It's an issue that Matthew Bargander with the Coalition to Preserve American Values says deserves the nation's immediate attention. The coalition will stage the rally, including a march to Congressman Dave Obey's office, to show its opposition toward amnesty bills that they say promotes illegal immigration.

Bargander says the group supports securing the nation's borders, but also supports more government funding for enforcement actions against illegal immigrants.

Bargander says the coalition is not opposed to legal immigrants, many of whom will be on hand tonight to talk about their experiences.

The rally begins at 6:30 p-m on the city square in downtown Wausau.
