Duckworth fasting for immigration legislation
U.S. Rep. Tammy Duckworth said she'd fast today in support of immigration legislation in Washington.
Activists have been fasting the last two months in support of an immigration approved by the U.S. Senate earlier this year, but the House hasn't voted on it and seems unlikely to this year.
Still, Democrats in the suburbs have tried to put the issue front and center. U.S. Rep. Jan Schakowsky similarly fasted for a day last month and was arrested at an immigration rally in October.
