WEST CHESTER, OHIO: Dozens of immigration change advocates have delivered petitions to a southwest Ohio district office of U.S. House Speaker John Boehner.

The umbrella group Alliance for Citizenship says it collected hundreds of thousands of petitions urging Boehner to bring up immigration reform for a vote. Supporters of providing a path to citizenship for immigrants in the United States illegally have been trying pressure House Republicans on the issue.

House GOP members have expressed opposition to a Senate immigration overhaul bill that includes eventual access to citizenship for 11 million immigrants already in the country illegally.

Advocates rallied Wednesday outside the office and dropped off stacks of petitions inside. A Boehner spokeswoman noted his recent statement saying House Republicans are “working on a common-sense, step-by-step approach” to fixing the immigration system.
