La Raza Unida Nunca Sera Vencida

That was from yesterdays rally where 100,000 pro-immigration supporters marched into downtown Chicago to show their support for immigrant rights.
"Raise those American flags!" shouted U.S. Rep. Luis Gutierrez, a Democrat. "This is our country, and this is where we will stay."

So to all Hatin' Xenophobic, Jingoistic, Racist, Rat Bastards get over yourselves!!

The sleeping giant has awakened! Hoy Marchamos! Manana Votamos!

[Update: More information on the march.]
From the Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights.

But that is not the only place a march has taken place. The article goes one to mention other marches.
  • Last week 5,000 Mexicans gathered in Oregon;
  • March 6, some 30,000 Latinos from the Washington, D.C.

It seems those numbers I quoted from the AP is underestimated. Chicago Police estimated the crowd at 300,000!!!
As CBS 2 Chief Correspondent Jay Levine reports, the protesters -- of Polish, Irish, Latino, Chinese and many other nationalities -- gathered at Union Park, at Ashland Avenue and Lake Street, and marched to the Loop. From the air, it appeared to be an endless sea of demonstrators, flooding the streets to protest the recently-passed house bill, which would make it a crime to hire or even help undocumented immigrants.
