There wasn't a law signed making ILLEGAL immigration legal, so why would people need to march against it? Please don't confuse immigration with illegal immigration.

It was said that there were more than 80 marches total across the country, protesting against racial profiling in AZ.

Although the crowd was roughly half as large as police projections, it was the largest May Day turnout since 2006, when anger over federal legislation that would have criminalized illegal immigrants and those who aid them brought out more than 1 million protesters nationwide. Since then, most activists have de-emphasized street actions in favor of change at the ballot box through promoting citizenship and voter registration.
The author of the article needs to understand the definition of an illegal act. When you commit an illegal act, you have in fact committed a crime.

No one takes these marches seriously, especially politicians. It actually angers many, not in a good way as any reference to Civil Rights is the most insulting comparison and should be warned not to keep stroking that bear, they are so far beneath any type of oppressive stance it is disgusting. They are a mockery of their "cause" and Americans not only laugh at them, but are ready for when they are scooted out of this country. After they crash and burn, we'll sweep away their ashes and get on with cleaning up this country. You can take your flags back to your home country as well.

Some folks aren’t so lucky. Take Mexican immigrants, for example. Or even U.S.-born Mexican-Americans. They’re continually suspected of having divided loyalties or being disloyal to the United States. To prove their allegiance and put others at ease, they’re told to ignore their heritage, abandon their culture, forget their language, and become just like everyone else.
Navarrette: A heritage double standard rises again Ventura County Star

That is a bad thing how? Either assimilate as Americans or leave. It is as simple as that. Note I am NOT referring to those aspects of their culture that do NOT conflict with ours but when there is a discrepancy between the two-----------American culture needs to dominate.

As for the Confederate thing; despite my having at least one direct male ancestor involved in the Civil War (probably on the Southern side), I do not take it very seriously outside of a historical context. Besides: Johnny Reb was a part of American history---------NOT Pancho Villa (except for his attack on Columbus NM)

It does not appear to me that this march was any bigger than any other march.

Don't forget that the illegals and the leftists march every May 1 because it's the Communist Labor Day where socialist workers throughout the world march.

For this reason May 1 is a holiday in Mexico. They are simply keeping one of their own holiday traditions. Back home in Mexico there were also many marches - and they weren't marching over Arizona laws at all.

Yesterday's May 1 Labor Day March in Mexico City.

You can find all kinds of similar May 1 marches going on. So trying to claim the one in Los Angeles was only about some law they don't like in Arizona is preposterous. These people celebrate this day because they neither know or care when Americans celebrate Labor Day.

The question that should be asked is how many will vote AGAINST it.Ever wonder why the amnesty minded Politicians will not let the people truly speak? Since this is an issue that affects the entire Country,Amnesty and Anchor Baby legislation should be put to a vote.It's supporters would easily LOSE that is why they're are not going this route.

Instead they're trying to force this issue through sell out Politicians like Mc Cain,Bush Jr.,Reid,Graham,Schumer and Obama.The reality is if it was voted on by the people they would LOSE.

They can have another march this Cinco de Mayo it still will not change their Illegal Status.These marches have lost their effectiveness just like the Race Card and claims of Racism.It's been WAY overused. So keep at it have a march every other day and even the marchers will get burned out like the rest of the Country.

You seem miserable.
