WAUKESHA -- Thousands of unaccompanied children have been pouring over the border from Mexico, and now there's a growing battle over what to do about it.

Community leaders in Waukesha will join a national day of action for immigration reform by rallying at Waukesha city hall  today at 11 a.m.

Similar demonstrations are being held around the country today. It's part of a nationwide coalition made up of business leaders, manufacturers, and members of the US chamber of commerce.
 
On Tuesday, President Barack Obama asked congress for nearly $4 billion in emergency funds. The money would be used for border security, speed-up the processing of the immigrants and improve care for kids in federal custody.
