JERSEY CITY - Supporters of immigration reform held a rally Friday at Jersey City's Journal Square.

Many of the protesters are students who are urging state legislators to allow in-state college tuition rates for undocumented students who have lived in the U.S. for many years.

"Most students that are not documented, they have no chance to afford studies," says student Jose Sanchez-Palma.

The state Assembly is scheduled to hold a hearing on the bill next week.
