  • "It's unbelievable," the officer said.

    "It's unbelievable," the officer said.
    The rally was the biggest in recent memory, surpassing anti-Iraq-war rallies in 2003, which at one point shut down Lake Shore Drive, and a 2002 protest at a trade meeting of U.S. and European chief executive
    officers and government officials.
    For such a huge crowd, it was remarkably peaceful: Police said there were no arrests. The only two
    marchers treated for injuries apparently fainted, authorities said.
    Traffic, however, was brought to a standstill along the entire route. At Halsted and Jackson, a CTA bus sat
    parked, along with a FedEx truck and one for Estes Express Lines, for more than two hours. The CTA
    said it had to reroute 14 buses, and Metra trains were delayed by the throngs on board.
    "It's not just about undocumented workers, it's about human beings and basic rights," said Estes driver
    Pedro Hernandez, who supported the marchers even though he was stuck just a few blocks from his last
    delivery.

      Im hearing that a massive rally may be in new york city immidiate future, as The immigration debate in the senate pick up steams.

      They are planning an even bigger rally in New york, home of millions and millions of migrants...NYC is the capital of immigrants and you the american public will witness the POWER of migrants when this gigantic rally will bring the entire city of new york, to a complete halt, complete shut down.
      IT WILL BE AT THIS VERY SAME MOMMENT, EVERYONE WILL REALIZE HOW IMPORTANT THOSE PEOPLE ARE TO THE US.

          Latino Undocumented immigrants will only be a small segment of the protesters, as other groups like african american, asians,arabs and other ethnic groups will all create a gigantic force that will cripple the city....People will feel their pain and their cry as they scream for fair treatment from this country that was built on heir backs,They will be national tv coverage and even Fox wont be able to ignore THE LARGEST RALLY EVER SEEN IN U.S SOIL.

          this great economy that the U.S enjoys would have never been possible if it wasnt for migrants and even undocumented immigrants which contrubute millions of tax dollars to the IRS.

            all that the Anti-immigrants are doing is waking up the sleeping giant.

            Well they have succeeded and they will wish they would have shut their mouth, for the sleeping giant has waken up!

            United they can get it done!

            Si Se Puede!

              Funny enough

              But I must say your camp is very fortunate, albatross23, because the so called "Latino undocumented immigrants" (whom you are , beyound any doubt, mocking here) are not even remotely as organized, well funded and knowledgable of how to run successful PR campaign compared to people at "NumbersUS", FAIR-US" and other non-prof orgs whose cause you obviously serve here.

              There is nothing that immigrants will or can do to counteract what FAIR-US accomplished and accomplishes so masterfully.
              Nothing.
              And those demonstrations will only turn out to show how weak and ineffective "Latino undocumented immigrants" are when it comes to influencing Congress and public opinion.

              Tides will turn at somewhat (may be much) later times, and it won't be any of the Immigrants' doing. I have wrote about it number of times before and see no reason to repeat the same here.

                so what?? 100,00 pendejos took a break from their illegaljobs to whine...big deal. The American people, who can read and write English, have and will continue to contact their representatives (sorry, but illegals cannot vote and therefore do not have representation, except scumbag lawyers) to tell them send illegals back to their own country.

                  After all they aren't Human beings, now are they, Someone12?
                  And since they are just a bunch of "pendejos", why not build some nice brick owens and burn them alltogether?
                  So much heat at almost no cost!

                    man, you and sundevil1usa are obsessed with racist remarks....think again, $hit-for-brains, pendejos are not a race. It's just another word for 'a$$holes' - however, if you believe that pendejos are a race, you certainly belong to it.
                    Deportation is a lot different process than oven building, you moron.

                      Keep demonstrating to the American people just how many illegal aliens there really are.
                      Talk about backfiring!

                        E's at it again, masquerading as Antifascist.
                        Anything to talk about racism. What's racist is to claim that illegal aliens aren't subject to our laws--that they're somehow "special", above even American citizens.

                          Pedro's got it wrong. There is no basic right for nonAMericans to enter this country, live in this country, or work in this country. THAT is a right left to the discretion of the American people and their duly elected representatives. There is no basic right to a driver's license or to a college education.

                            Hey, racially unsecure Aliba and Someone12 (clear proof that both of you are racists), where on this thread have you seen me using the word "race" (except this last post where I question your responces)?

                              So what's the reference to ovens about, E, if not race? And the burning of Jews in the ovens during the Holocaust? As if the situation of illegal aliens in this country were in any way comparable. People who break our laws shouldn't be surprised when they're called to account for it.
