NYC Immigration Rally

by Joseph McKeown


Thousands rallied for immigration reform this past Saturday, October 5, 2013, in Brooklyn. This rally (one of many across the nation) formed at Cadman Plaza in Brooklyn and ended in a march over the Brooklyn Bridge. Holding such signs as "El Momento Es Ahora," "No More Death at the Border," and "I heart Immigration Reform," protestors listened to such speakers as Democratic mayoral candidate Bill de Blasio. Speaking of the undocumented in the US, he said, "They deserve a chance too. Eleven million people who make this country work." He added, "We are the city of immigrants." Attorney Elizabeth Brettschneider and I were on hand to capture a few shots from the rally and march.
