Some organizers of an immigration rally planned for today in Washington say they're not finding the same fervor that marked similar rallies in April and May.

"We believe that is because Congress has frozen the immigration debate," [[Ricardo Juarez]] said.

Juarez is a member of [[Mexicans Without Borders]] in Northern Virginia, one of many organizations that make up the National Capital Immigration Coalition, which is organizing the rally.

...Juarez said the coalition is working in 17 cities in Virginia to try to mobilize people for the march.
