Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) The Nuns on the Bus tour made a stop Tuesday morning at the United Presbyterian Church on Chenango Street.

The group is speaking out on comprehensive immigration reform and fighting for a repeal of the federal sequestration cuts that affected Meals on Wheels, food stamps and other local programs that support families in need.

"It's an opportunity for all of us as citizens. It's an opportunity to become a bigger people. It's an opportunity to become an inclusive nation. It's an opportunity for all of us, an opportunity where dreams become real," said Father Tim Taugher from Saint Francis of Assisi.

The Nuns on the Bus tour is also planning stops in Cortland and Utica.
