VIDEO: Immigrants Rights March in Downtown LA

by A Monday, Sep. 04, 2006 at 8:29 AM

Although only a fraction the size of the massive marches of March 25 and May1 this march still drew an estimated 3,500 people.

The message has grown from more than just opposition to house bill HR4437 and senate bill SB2611 to new demands. Among these new demands are:

1. A moratorium on all deportations
2. An immediate end to all deportations and raids.
3. Full and immediate legalization without compromises

One of the central issues is the division of families when the children of immigrants who are born in the US and have US citizenship by birthright are separated from their parents by forced deportations. This is the case of Elvira Arellano and her son Saul who are currently resisting deportation by seeking sanctuary in a church in Chicago. In recognition of this the march was dedicated to immigrant women and their children everywhere who are facing the same threat.
