The Sleeping Giant awakes...

On Saturday, over 1 million protested against federal legistlation that would crack down undocumented immigrants, penalize those who help them and build a security wall along U.S.' southern border. This was the largest demonstration in the history of California. March organizers announced that the crowd was over 1 million. Univision and other Spanish-language television reported that up to 2 million people marched. The Los Angeles Times, reflecting police estimates, gave the march 500,000 - police estimates have been trying to minimize pro-immigrant rights demonstration for the last few weeks.
