Description
This raw footage shows a march in support of Hispanic immigrants in Sacramento, California, possibly from 2006. Chanting "Si se puede," the motto of the United Farm Workers, the protesters hold American and Mexican flags, along with signs in Spanish and English. One sign reads, "My grandparents are immigrants, not criminals" while another states "We are America." The large march ends in front of the California capitol building. In 2005, the "Sensenbrenner Bill" or H.R. 4437 passed the House of Representatives, gallivanting the Latino and Hispanic immigrant community into action. The bill, if passed, would have criminalized aid to an undocumented immigrants, removed measures for undocumented immigrants to gain citizenship, prohibited grants to sanctuary cities, and instituted other measures damaging to undocumented immigrants. In response, immigrant advocates and supporters took to streets in May 2006, marching in at least 12 cities in large numbers. The largest demonstration occurred in Chicago, who counted almost 300,000 protestors.
