Size of L.A. March Surprises Authorities

I'm not surprised. Americans will do anything to get out of work.

Thousands of immigration advocates marched through downtown Los Angeles in one of the largest demonstrations for any cause in recent U.S. history.

Oh and it's about immigration, no wonder it's in California.

More than 500,000 protesters - demanding that Congress abandon attempts to make illegal immigration a felony and to build more walls along the border - surprised police who estimated the crowd size using aerial photographs and other techniques, police Cmdr. Louis Gray Jr. said.

You know, the word illegal is in illegal immigration. That means it's against the law. So when you break the law in the US you get in trouble. (unless you have a lot of money) So, how can we protest this? I'm all for LEGAL immigration but when you have people running through the desert trying to get into the country you have a problem. Why? Because there is an abundance of people in this world that would like to blow things up in my country. So maybe we need to be able to trace immigrants. Just an idea.

Wearing white T-shirts to symbolize peace, the demonstrators chanted "Mexico!" "USA!" and "Si se puede," an old Mexican-American civil rights shout that means "Yes, we can."

No you can't. It's illegal. You're breaking our laws. Do it lawfully and there's no problem. Are we that fucking stupid in this country that we are protesting a punishment for an illegal act? We don't protest against jail time for drug dealers but some guy playing marathon across the border deserves our representation as a nation? I know that the US was built on immigration and we're a melting pot and all that but you're talking about fifty years ago. These days people fly planes into buildings and blow themselves up on the subway. Maybe we should change with the times no?
