A national group promoting border security took to the State Capitol this afternoon.

The Iowa Minutemen held its seventh annual rally and forum on immigration. 

The group aimed to educate the public about illegal immigration and work to change the laws locally.

Speakers took to the podium to share their positions and personal experiences with illegal immigrants in our state. 

The group hopes these rallies create awareness for change. 

 “We’d like to see the border secured, we would like to see national e-verify where in order to get employed you have to verify that you’re a citizen,” says Minutemen State Director Robert Ussery.

Polk County Sheriff candidate, Dan Charleston, also spoke about his views on illegal immigration at today’s rally.
