Linares, a factory worker, will join other immigrants, most of them undocumented Hispanics, in Washington, D.C., for a Sunday march to dramatize their pleas for immigration reform.

Day laborers are expected to rally on Sunday in Washington, D.C., with tens of thousands of immigrants, many of them undocumented Hispanics, to dramatize their pleas for immigration reform.

The laborers, walking more than 250 miles from Hempstead, N.Y., hope to join immigrants aboard more than 700 buses from at least 28 states and numerous caravans from the South and Southwest.

Other issues pushed by the immigration groups include labor protection, a suspension of deportations until the bill is passed, an end to splitting families, and improvements in backlogs for legal visas.
