As many as half a million people marched peacefully through downtown Dallas on Sunday for the rights of illegal immigrants, in the largest civil rights demonstration in the city's history – and to some experts, the birth of a new social movement.

"We came, we made history," said Victoria Garcia, a 21-year-old marcher from Dallas. Ms. Garcia, who was born in the U.S., said she participated because she was worried there wouldn't be enough marchers.

Between 350,000 and 500,000 participants showed up, according to Dallas police estimates. In Fort Worth, about 10,000 to 30,000 people marched.

emphasis mine: Besides normal human rights.. what rights does this country afford illegal immirgants? I am aware of many that this country has for it's citizens, and rules and laws to help protect tourists/temp workers (documented kind).. but seriously... what other rights are they marching about? Anyone have a list? link? anything?

There's a New York Times article on this same march that sheds some light on that question....

They were young and old; some pushing strollers, some in wheelchairs or walking with canes. Many made their own placards that read "Fair legislation for all immigrants," "If I am illegal so are my taxes," "Latinos Unidos" and "Today we march. Tomorrow we vote."

[...]

He said he turned up for today's protest because he has many friends who are still undocumented and are very frustrated.

"We are here because we want to be legalized," said Mr. Guzman, who has been a roofer in Salem for 20 years. "We just come to work."

I say we all abandon our visa petitions...sneak our partners in illegally, then we can just march & everything will be ok & we'll get rights just handed to us. I mean why bother with police enquiries, medical exams, financial holdings enquiries, long lengths of separation, etc. Why? Why should we all be so f***ing concered with EAD when we can just have our foreign illegal spouses work under the table and screw everyone?

Lookit, there's half a million ppl in just one city trying to help that

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) should be waiting at the end of the march to check papers and have buses ready.

You know they won't do that because of the politicians, right? There will always be people in the government who are more interested in getting votes. They probably figured that there are more ethnic minorites (who are legal US citizens) going to the polls nowadays.

I can understand where some ppl have been waiting on GC hell for years (some I have read accounts of for upto 5yrs.. mostly Miami area).. but the others is total BS.

This kind of thing, I suppose:

The two-mile Atlanta march was in support of immigrant rights nationally as well as in protest of state legislation awaiting Gov. Sonny Perdue's signature, The Associated Press reported. If signed, it would require that adults seeking many state-administered benefits prove they are in the country legally, according to AP.

Now, how dare the state of Georgia limit access to benefits to only those people that are in the country legally. How dare they not pour tax dollars out to anyone, anytime, anywhere. Cold-hearted bastards that they are.

You see? ;)

Well, I wasn't in downtown Dallas yesterday, so I had to watch the news reports on TV like so many other people. Funny thing is that I heard the estimates to be half of what is in the DMN's article. I think they like to print the higher numbers for good effect, but I didn't hear anything about massive hours long traffic jams, which you certainly would have if you are moving that many ppl around this city in a short amount of time. They did put on extra trains, but I have heard that when there have been fire-works displays downtown, that traffic can be snarled up for hours . . . I have been caught in some of those. So who knows!

But only 50,000 paletas (frozen fruit bars) were sold??? LOL, look at the "numbers" they listed at the end of the article!

And what about 10 "Girls Gone Wild" video crew members being there? Were they expecting all the Latinas to flash them while they marched? Stupid ppl!!!
