Some protesters in Grand Junction gathered to praise a Colorado senator and condemn another.
This is in response to yesterday's senate vote to revive immigration reform legislation.
The picket line began in front of Senator Allard's office in the Federal Building this morning. Allard voted no on the measure that critics say gives amnesty to lawbreakers and argues it would fail to stop illegal immigrants from entering the U.S.
The bill will tighten border security, create a temporary guest worker program, and grant legal status to millions of undocumented workers in the U.S.
The measure, backed by President Bush, has gained support from many senate Democrats, including Ken Salazar.
After visiting Allard's office, the protesters then flipped their signs over and marched down the street to picket in front of Salazar's office in opposition of his decision.
