Hundreds Protest Immigration Rights at State House

The immigration debate sparked a large protest outside the Rhode Island State House Wednesday.

Hundreds of people rallied who were upset over Governor Chafee's support of in-state college tuition rates and driver's licenses for illegal immigrants.

More than a dozen of immigrant children paraded their way through the State House delivering white roses to the governor's staff to thank Chafee for his support of in-state tuition and driver's licenses for undocumented immigrants.

Chafee did not attend the event. His staff told ABC6 he was in meetings at the time. The governor says he won't hesitate using his power to put policy changes in place.
