Group protests outside congresswoman's office
SOUTHWEST MIAMI-DADE, Fla. (WSVN) -- A group of South Florida residents gathered to make a call for change at a congresswoman's office.
Concerned citizens protested outside congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen's office Thursday. The group demanded that Congress get its act together and start focusing on job creation. "If we don't have jobs, we can't play the stock market, and we can't do any investing. We can't put money into our economy: We can't buy clothing, we can't buy food, we can't buy the things that we need in order to survive, so without a job there is no economy," Anna Kleinholz said.
The protesters were eventually allowed into the office to discuss their issues with a district director.
A spokesperson for Ros-Lehtinen said the congresswoman is not in town but is listening to their concerns.
