500,000 Pack Streets to Protest Immigration Bills

In the LA Times there was an article by Teresa Watanabe and Hector Becerra, Times Staff Writers on March 26, 2006

"The rally, part of a massive mobilization of immigrants and their supporters, may be the largest L.A. has seen. A crowd estimated by police at more than 500,000 boisterously marched in Los Angeles on Saturday to protest federal legislation that would crack down on undocumented immigrants, penalize those who help them and build a security wall along the U.S.' southern border.

Spirited but peaceful marchers — ordinary immigrants alongside labor, religious and civil rights groups — stretched more than 20 blocks along Spring Street, Broadway and Main Street to City Hall, tooting kazoos, waving American flags and chanting, "Sí se puede!" (Yes we can!)".
