So, today being a Saturday, of course I went in to work. And living in New York City, of course, the subways were on a different weekend schedule. So instead of taking the 4/5 all the way down to Wall St., I had the luxury of getting off at Brooklyn Bridge/City Hall and walking. Little did I know, there was a protest scheduled for today. Apparently some people are up in arms about proposed immigration legislation. - On Saturday, it was a colorful sea of flags and resembled a street festival with children, parents, and senior citizens.
Here is how MSNBC decided to cover the event:
- Thousands of immigrants and their supporters chanted, blew whistles and waved flags from dozens of Latin American countries...
- A festive crowd of more than 10,000 people shouted “We are all Americans,” and carried banners in Spanish and English saying “We are not criminals” and "Immigrant rights are human rights”...
Basically folks? It's a P. A. R. T. Y.!!!! Grab a Mexican flag and catch some "undocumented" fever!!
