L.A. March for Immigrants Rights This Saturday - Sunday




On March 2, 2006 , the Southern California based coalition "March 25 Coalition Against HR4437" held a press conference to announce a major mass mobilization against the passage of the Sensenbrenner Bill, to be held in downtown Los Angeles on Saturday March 25, 2006. The march expected to be the largest in the country to date will also demand an integral, comprehensive and family oriented immigration reform that will lead to the legalization and eventual citizenship for the 12 million undocumented immigrants in this country.

The Coalition calls on all immigrants and all Californians of all colors and creeds, labor, clergy, community and political organizations, students and youth to protest, make their voices heard and galvanize the movement for humane immigration reform all the way to Washington DC. The US Senate is expected to begin debate on the Senate floor on March 27.

The Coalition publicly calls on and invites Mayor Antonio Villaraigoza, LA Council President Eric Garcetti, Assembly Speaker Fabian Nunez, and Senators Gil Cedillo and Gloria Romero to join and repudiate the "wall of shame" and the criminalization of immigrants as felons proposed in the House approved "Border Protection and Antiterrorist and Illegal Immigration Control Act" on Dec. 15, 2005. The coalition leaders also makes a special call to all the members of the wide and popular Spanish language media and progressive media to assist them in making MARCH 25 the largest demonstration in support of immigrant workers and their families in recent history.

Mexicans will never go down without a fight all we are asking for is a chance to be heard and to be acknowledged as human beings just like any other!! We are hard working , and are here to better ourselves and our childrens future!! This bill is very unjust because we are not CRIMINALS!! Nor are all the other races that are not latino or hispanic, their are chinese immigrants, viatnamese, korean, african, iraqi, every country on this earth has immigrants in the states and it is unfair to judge us just because we are MEXICAN!!

Yes I would first off like to say that im mexican and im proud. I also am in the military to protect this country. Just as many other mexicans are. I have been to many countries and to War for this country. Its funny to me that they will make you a citizen if you join there army but if not you cant come to america. Your good enough to fight for them but not to be a citizen and work. Thats bullshit and I am trully offended. Latinos started it all and without us there nothing.

I think this bill is not only stupid its racist.I know that not all immagrants are here to work but you cant judge all for the actions of a few.My parents were at one time immigrants and they have no problems w/ the law.And how can you say that immagrants are taking money(stiling)by coming to this country when most immagrants are in this country working the feild, construction and other jobs that the "americans" are to delicate to do.These people are working minimum wage and dont even recieve workers comp when they are injured,some dont even report injuries for fear of being deported.Americans? AMERICANS are those who live in the north, central, and south part of AMERICA.So if they really want us out give them a taste of what a day with an IMMAGRENT would be like.

First of all there yes i am a Mexican AND SO PROUD OF BEIGN IT and there is no such thing has a real true american. America is made out of all the immigrant from other places that decide to make america there home. so the question is who can prove a real true american cause as far as i'm concerned there is mexican american, african americans, chinese american, philipinos americans,etc. so who's the real true american? think america this country is made out of and brought out to sucess by nothin that immigrants.And atruly this country is nothing if you dont have immigrants especially mexicans because there is more popularity of immigrants that are mexicans and all a mexican comes to america is to have a better life have a better opportunity for their kids and also we are not criminals GOD DIDNT MAKE THIS WORLD WITH BORDERS SO WHY MAKE BORDERS? aztecs were the first one's to step here so why argue?

My name is Maria Arambula I’m from Chicago Illinois. I was not born in America I was born in Mexico and proud of it. I was one of the thousands of people that marched on March 10, 2006 against the law HR4437. I believe that people need to go to Mexico to really understand why Mexicans cross the boarder. Living in Mexico is not easy families live pay check to pay check. They struggle to put food on the table and kids start to work at the age of 7 to help their families. Not only Mexicans suffer so do other nationalities. We come here to America to have a better future not for ourselves but for our kids as well. WE ARE NOT CRIMINALS AND WE SHOULDN'T BE TREATED LIKE ONE!!!!!!!!!!

OMFG i wish people would really try and understand what this bill is gonna do and not get so angry and call the president names, this bill is not just for latinos, mexicans whatever you wanna call yourself, this bill is gonna affect everyone that has come to America illegally. Just because the majority of illegal alien the US gets is hispanic does not mean that they are the only ones, every asian, jamacian, people from iraq, people that have not gone thru the process of getting their "papers" green card whatever you want to call it will be deported. Why? for the simple fact that they are here illegally, key word being ILLEGAL, its doesnt matter which country u go to it is all the same illegal is against the law and those that break the law should be punished, maybe not to the extent that they want to call illegals criminals but it should become a misdeamoner. So please my hispanic people dont get so worked up about this if you are trying to get your papers then you are doing what you should, but for those not trying then they make that decision and should be dealt with accordingly, we should not be protesting because in the end some might not have jobs because they thought it was a good idea to take the day off just to see how it would affect others because it is not a hispanic that writes out your paycheck or pays you in cash but it is a white man who pays you and has the choice to Fire you when you dont show up to work. As far as i see it we have not done anything wrong when it comes to working hard everyday, while we have Arabs coming to America and crashing planes into buildings killing hundreds of people while they are working on their Visa, the US is worried about the wrong people and they should think about that. Whats more important trying to deport those who cut your grass or keeping someone who is a possible terrorist from killing people. In the end many hispanics will get deported but it will be at a cost to the economy, taxes, fees, etc...

THIS COUNTRY IS BULIT ON IMMIGRANTS HOW CAN U TRY 2 TAKE OUT THE PEOPLE WHO ONECE OWNED THIS LAND!!!! VIVA MEXICO PUTOS!

Anonymous said...

Take out the people that once owned this land??? That is the most BS i have heard on any of these posts, come on think about who owned this first??? The Native Americans( we call them Indians) they once owned this land and it ALL got taken away from them and now they only get a few acres of land for their reservations in a few states, so when it comes to having land taken away from someone we done here the Native Americans talk about going on strike or calling the President names. So please to all the naive Mexicans SHUT UP already enough of your BS come to this country the right way and you wont be complaining, Long Live the United States of America if you dont like then leave the same way you got here, in the back of a trailor with no windows.
