I do not need to think of one. Do you honestly believe that 60,000 people represent the majority of people in an entire area of over 17 million?

It's irrelevant whether it was the largest or not. Like I asked before, do you honestly believe that 60,000 people represent the majority of people in an entire area of over 17 million?

You're fighting a battle fabricated in your mind. Read the AZ Bill before you figure out what you're actually protesting. G'nite.

This is what pisses me off. Every demonstration its the same damn thing.

I've read your posts, and you're an intelligent man. One of the few that is against illegal immigration, without any of the emotional, dramatic, or prejudiced arguments that others add on to it.

So I would suspect that you could consider the possibility that the newspapers, and photographers tend to gravitate to the more dramatic photos. I was at the event, and while I wasn't everywhere in the march, I personally saw about ten Mexican flags, some of those actually paired with American flags.

The media coverage of the rallies are too often cropped photos like these. Wouldn't a wider frame containing more people be better to represent what's really going on?

The same can be said about other cities across the country. To compare, you can find about 60,000 people parading on Sixth Street in Austin, TX each year for Halloween.
How many march against immigration? Or against illegal immigrants?
