More than 200,000 people gathered on the National Mall today to participate in March for America, a rally advocating comprehensive immigration reform.
Organized by Reform Immigration for America, the rally brought together groups from around the country — including Service Employees International Union, Midwest Organic and Sustainable Education Service, United Food and Commercial Workers International Union, Democracia Ahora and the Coalition for Human Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles — to send a message to lawmakers: "The time for immigration reform is now."
President Obama delivered a message from the big screens in the crowd in which he assured the demonstrators of his commitment to passing comprehensive immigration reform.
And these weren't teabaggers.
And these weren't teabaggers (though a number of them are "fighting the establishment").
Oh yes, the teabaggers have been in full force this last week. Yeah, keep freeping those R-J & Sun comment sections!
