The debate over illegal immigration took to the streets of downtown Lexington Saturday.
A large group protested in front of city hall nearly a week after the Mayor's Commission on Immigration made some recommendations about how illegal immigrants should be treated here.
Among those recommendations; giving anyone an i.d. card or drivers license regardless of immigration status.
Those protesting say that should 'not' happen in Lexington.
Meanwhile, immigration rights activist Freddie Peralta has praised the commission's recommendations saying he'll help lobby to change the drivers license law.
