SAN ANTONIO -- Local civil rights and immigrants' rights groups marked Independence Day with a renewed call for immigration reform.

They held a demonstration Wednesday evening in the 1300 block of Guadalupe Street.

State Rep. Joaquin Castro and U.S. Rep. Lloyd Doggett joined them in a show of support for San Antonio's immigrant community.

What better time than here and Independence Day to declare our commitment, especially to our dreamers, to say, let their dreams be fulfilled, let them serve, let them contribute, said Doggett.

Doggett saluted President Obama for putting a stop to some deportations, but says more needs to be done.
