Today in downtown Los Angeles,
over 1 million people demonstrated in support of immigrant rights.
This was the largest demonstration in the history of California.
March organizers announced from the stage that the crowd was over
1 million. Univision and other Spanish-language television reported
that up to 2 million people marched. The Los Angeles Times, reflecting
police estimates, gave the march 500,000 - police estimates have
been trying to minimize pro-immigrant rights demonstration for the
last few weeks.
