Pro-Amnesty Event on the National Mall Predictable, Unimpressive


Melanie and I joined two local groups in a counter-protest today near the Pro-amnesty “March for Dignity and Respect” on the closed National Mall. Then we headed down to the event organizers claimed would bring in tens of thousands of participants. Even with a top-name band playing – Los Tigres del Norte – they had a few thousand at best.

Just before the “March” two local pro-enforcement groups held a press availability a block away. Local affiliates for ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, Univision and Telemundo interviewed the group leaders as did some print reporters. The rest of us held up large signs for passing traffic to see, like No Amnesty and Honk.
