CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Nationwide immigration reform is the goal of one group traveling around the country urging congress to take action. On Wednesday, that group's bus tour hit Corpus Christi.

"The goal is to visit 75 congressional districts in the nation to call for immigration reform," said Carlos Duarte, the state director of Mi Familia Vota. "We are asking the community to fast with us every Wednesday during Lent to pass immigration reform."

It's called the Fast for Families National Bus Tour. They were parked at the LULAC Council 1 Hall on Wednesday. The group has embarked on a two-bus, 14,000-mile trip over 75 congressional districts in hopes of getting citizens mobilized.

The bus tour will wrap up next Tuesday.
