Pro-immigration-rights activists held the second day of demonstrations outside the Santa Clarita Valley office of Rep. Howard “Buck” McKeon, R-Santa Clarita, on Tuesday, hoping to persuade him to support “path to citizenship” legislation.

About 30 demonstrators showed up for a rally that drew a complaint from an office building occupant. No one was arrested, and organizers said about 1,000 petition signatures were delivered to staff urging McKeon to act on comprehensive immigration reform that allows amnesty for undocumented workers.

McKeon was not in town and did not respond to a request for comment.

Organizers are scheduled to hold a solidarity picnic at Old Orchard Park in Newhall at 3 p.m. Wednesday.
