Massive Immigration Rallies Sunday and Monday
This is getting old.
Michelle Malkin has a roundup with photos from the various events held on Sunday across the country.
The festivities will also play today in Denver:
Organizers estimate that up to 2 million supporters will participate in more than 100 activities today across the country, including Denver, to push for fair immigration policies that reflect the contributions of illegal immigrants.Power Line has an interesting idea for an experiment in citizen journalism--bloggers infiltrating the rallies and providing the news that the MSM will not provide. Slapstick Politics will be there.
"This is certainly a grass-roots-led event. There are hundreds of cities across the country that are having this happen," said Avril Smith, a spokesman for the National Capital Immigrant Coalition, a Washington, D.C.-based group that developed the National Day of Action concept and helped organize rallies across the U.S.
"We're calling on Congress to pass a comprehensive reform that makes our country more secure and raises standards for all working people in this country," Smith said.
In Denver, a candlelight vigil is scheduled at 7 p.m. at Sloan's Lake, according to Julieta Quinonez, 19, of Jovenes Unidos, or United Youths, who have promoted the event on the bilingual radio station Mega 95.7 FM. The vigil is to remember those who have died crossing the border.
