Immigrant Rights March in Denver

Last Thursday, thousands of people marched in Denver to call for Just and Humane Immigration Reform. The march marked the last day of a Democratic National Convention that gave little recognition to the immigration issue.

In a post titled “Immigration: Too Hot for DNC?”, Robert Lovato mentions the march:

Outside of the Pepsi Convention Center are hundreds of immigrant rights groups planning a major mobilization this Thursday – the day of Obama’s acceptance speech. They will protest what they believe is the unwillingness of Democrats and their Washington-based immigrant rights allies to seriously support what the press release of the March 25th Coalition calls “human legalization and a moratorium on raids and deportations.”

At VivirLatino, one blogger asks California Representative Loretta Sanchez about the raids in Mississippi that had occurred the same day.  Sanchez dodged the question.
