BBC NEWS | Americas | US rally backs illegal migrants

BBC NEWS | Americas | US rally backs illegal migrants: "Tens of thousands of people have taken part in a rally in the US city of Dallas in support of the 11 million illegal migrants in the country.

They called on the Congress to approve a provision allowing the immigrants to stay in the US legally.

On Friday, the US Senate failed to reach agreement on a compromise deal that would allow illegal immigrants to apply for US citizenship.

On Monday, pro-immigrant groups plan nationwide rallies on the issue."
BBC NEWS | Americas | Crowds rally for US immigration: "Huge numbers of people across the US are taking part in rallies supporting some 11.5 million illegal immigrants.

Hundreds of thousands are gathering in several cities, including Atlanta, Washington, Los Angeles and New York.

Unions, civil rights groups, schools and churches want Congress to approve a provision allowing undocumented workers to remain in the country.

President George W Bush backs a guest-worker scheme but faces stiff opposition within his Republican party."
It just goes to show that not all USAmericans are prejudiced, and not all USAmericans are irrealistic about this immigration situation. I am proud of the country where I live because of them. They are the ones defending the ideals that the country was founded on, and they continue to give me hope in the potential for good that there is in the USA. Be blessed people!


  • Its true that illegal immigrants are scattered all over America, the sad part about this is that they are just trying to feed their families who are some place else.
